Open-Source Opportunities with the Haskell Foundation

The Haskell Foundation is an independent, non-profit organization dedicated to amplifying the impact of Haskell on humanity and broadening the adoption of Haskell, by supporting its ecosystem of tools, libraries, education, and research. Haskell is already used in industry for purposes as varied as payment processing, formal verification of cryptography, freight forwarding, and spam fighting, and its influence can be seen far and wide in the world of programming languages, but more remains to be done. In this talk, I'll give an overview of the key Haskell community infrastructure and point to some opportunities for high-value contributions to the Haskell ecosystem, both for experienced Haskellers and those still learning the language. I'll also talk about how the Haskell Foundation thinks about where we can get the most leverage from our work.
