Simon Peyton Jones: Beautiful concurrency

Simon Peyton Jones: Beautiful concurrency:

I am writing a chapter for a book called “Beautiful code”, edited by Greg Wilson. My draft chapter is about Software Transactional Memory in Haskell.

I would welcome any comments or questions you have on the paper, or constructive suggestions for improving it; the more concrete the better.


The book is aimed at a general audience of programmers, not Haskell geeks, so I have tried to explain everything necessary as I go along. So if you are not a Haskell expert, your input would be particularly valuable to me.

You can post your comments on the Haskell wiki.

STM was discussed here many time before, of course. For me the original papers were easier to follow, but some may prefer the style of presentation used here.
