Julie first told us how she met Christopher Allen, the co-author of her Book "Haskell programming from first principles", why learning in general is hard and why they wanted to approach learning Haskell from a different angle. We then drifted into Julie's own learning of Haskell and how she came into the programming world. We then digged further into the Haskell echosystem and the world of academia. And finally, we touched on TypeClass, Julie's own company, dedicated to teaching Haskell.
Julie Moronuki went to college for philosophy and linguistics, and once believed she would spend her adult life doing morphological analysis of Native American languages and writing papers about generative syntax. But instead her real passion is teaching. And as such she took on the challenge to learn Haskell and co-author a book called "Haskell Programming from First Principles" in order to teach the Haskell language to people with no prior programming experience.
Julie is a co-founder of the Haskell education site "Type Classes" and her most recent book is called "Finding Success (and Failure) in Haskell". She lives in Montana, where she homeschools her two children, grows a big garden, and keeps way too many pets.
