Sebastopol, CADeveloping Web Applications with Haskell and Yesod (O'Reilly Media, $34.99 USD) introduces a potent language/framework combination that supports high-performing applications that are modular, type-safe, and concise.

"This fast-moving guide was written for programmers with existing web experience, who are interested in taking the plunge into functional programming," explains author Michael Snoyman (@snoyberg). "Some familiarity with Haskell is required, but we provide an introduction to the more complex topics. Users will start off by learning the details of how to use Yesod at a high level, from RESTful routing to Shakespearean templates and data persistence."

By the time you finish this book, you'll create a production-quality web application with Yesod's ready-to-use scaffolding. You'll also examine several real-world examples, including a blog, a wiki, a JSON web service, and a Sphinx search server.

"Yesod 1.0 was just released," Snoyman smiles. "As such, we're announcing to the world that Yesod is stable, and ready for general consumption. Now's a great time to get into Yesod."
