The ICFP contest has a winner!
And no, this year Haskell is not the language of choice :(
Don't miss the video of the presentation at ICFP, seriously cool stuff, at least if you can follow the geeky -rather academia- jokes. Only by watching it you'll find out which is the super-cool multinational company that has conquered both 1st and 3rd prize this year.
#haskell managed to have 5 teams among the first 50: Lazy Bottoms, DunComLooLump, Deus Ex Machina, Team Roflcopter, and the Int-E lone ranger team. Not too shabby, though nothing compared to previous successes. None of the winners this year used a high-level language.
By the way, a few weeks ago I made a video to showcase the ghci debugger which used the ICFP contest task as an example. Watch it!
