Keynote with Simon Peyton Jones, Inventor and developer of the programming language Haskell: Escape from the Ivory Tower: The Haskell Journey

Abstract: Haskell is my first baby, born slightly before my eldest son, who is now in his late 20s. From somewhat academic beginnings as a remorselessly pure functional programming language, Haskell has evolved into a practical tool used for real applications and, amazingly, is still in a state of furious innovation. In this talk I'll discuss Haskell's birth and evolution, including some of the research and engineering challenges we faced in design and implementation. I'll focus particularly on the ideas that have turned out, in retrospect, to be most important and influential, as well as sketching some current developments and making some wild guesses about the future.

Bio: Simon Peyton-Jones is a researcher at Microsoft Research in Cambridge, England, where he has been based since September 1998. Simon is also an Honorary Professor of the Computing Science Department at Glasgow University and currently acts as chair of Computing at School (CAS), the group at the epicentre of the reform of the national curriculum for Computing in England.
Simon is best known and most respected for his seminal work on the design and development of Haskell, "the" lazy functional programming language in use today. Haskell, despite its purely academic beginning, is nowadays increasingly used by practitioners. Haskell---Simon's first baby--turned out to be an ever-demanding offspring, as Simon is still lead developer of the Glasgow Haskell Compiler (GHC).
Together with Simon Marlow, Simon Peyton-Jones was awarded the SIGPLAN Programming Languages Software Award for their work on GHC. Further, he is a Fellow of the Royal Society, a Distinguished Fellow of the British Computer Society, and in 2019 he was appointed chair of the newly founded UK National Centre for Computing Education.
