# Probability monads at Hac 07 II

From October 5-7, I’ll be at the Haskell Hackathon in Freiburg.

I’ll be working on probability monads, attempting to turn my various blog articles into a real Haskell library.

Some resources:

- Control.Monad.Probability source code: This is the as-yet-unreconstructed code from my blog posts.
- Draft paper on probability monads: This paper explains the theory, and it has terser implementations of some ideas.

If you were a peer reviewer, or gave me feedback on the paper, my humble thanks–and apologies. I haven’t had a chance to revise the paper yet, and so your feedback is not yet included.

See you at the Hackathon!

Want to contact me about this article? Or if you're looking for something else to read, here's a list of popular posts.

Thanks!
If anyone needs to contact me, please send me an e-mail (or use the contact form), and I'll send you my German phone number as soon as the SIM shops open.

There's a list of things to do on the Hackathon Wiki.

Hello Eric from Dylan hacking days!
re: your Haskell probability monad, there was a presentation at the PADL2006 on a (probability) distribution monad and its implementation. Steve was the presenter there, and my review (including a link to the Haskell source) is at http://www.logicaltypes.com/literature/padl.html#pres-practical-dist
Not sure if the two monad types are related, but FYI.
Sincerely,
Doug Auclair
