Hi, my name is Gil Mizrahi. I am a programmer specializing in typed functional languages. I enjoy writing useful, real-world software, in a functional way using functional languages.
I like to work on compilers, games, concurrent and network applications, databases, websites, tools to increase programmers' productivity, build systems and utilities, and more.
I also enjoy teaching and helping others and occasionally write about my experiences building software and tutorials for programming related content, especially functional programming.
I use Haskell to build a all kinds of software. compilers, games, emulators, utilities, websites and more. When I need to write a GUI, I use PureScript.
I am also proficient in other languages, but I rarely need to use them to achieve my goals.
Some of my notable open-source projects are:
msg is a chat server and a web client written in Haskell and PureScript respectively.
x86-debug is an emulator/VM/debugger for a small subset of x86. While small, it is enough to be a target for a simple compiler such as nyanpasu.
nyanpasu is a WIP compiler for a simple expression-based language targeting x86 (+ a C wrapper).
Nyx is a bullet-hell shoot-'em-up game written in Haskell using sdl2.
Some of my notable articles and tutorials:
Reading Simple Haskell is a guide and reference to Haskell basics.
Writing Simple Haskell builds on top of Reading Simple Haskell and shows how to build a simple application in Haskell.
Haskell Study Plan is an opinionated list of resources for learning Haskell.
Building Gathering: A Website For Announcing Group Events is an experience report on building a website using Haskell.
Purely Functional Games describes my experience building a game in Haskell.
