Probabilistic modelling in Idris: engineering as research
I've come to love the linear approach, where instead of working with Naperian (Representable) functors, you work with Distributive functors.

See also the linear library, it contains types like data V3 a = V3 a a a with all of the useful instances.

Languages that don't support ErrorCatching as a Control Structure?
There are a few languages that have algebraic effect systems, most notably Haskell, but these systems are implemented as libraries, not baked into the language (which can have advantages and disadvantages).

The Problem of Effects (2020)
Let me tell you what I'm worried about with effects systems: One of the smartest people I know of has a library called Eff https://github.com/hasura/eff that efficiently implements effects through some modifications to GHC. The thing is, she's pretty much stopped working on because she found some really nasty semantic edgecases that she couldn't resolve to her satisfaction. (I don't understand the problems well enough to describe them, and I think they're specific to lazy languages, but it has left me cautious about the effect model in general.)

Thoughts on polysemy?
eff was supposed to solve (some of) the above problems, but it's stalled now.

A solid GUI Framework for Haskell?
Why do you need a GUI library, if you can write your application using extensible effects frameworks, just choose any and enjoy!

I’ve tried to learn Haskell several times. But keep failing
It means that you can see a type signature like this and you know immediately how it will provide what you want in the context of an arbitrary monad "stack." It means that when you are looking to understand how to use e.g. MegaParsec it doesn't surprise you that the discussion of the relevant monads is the first thing in the tutorial. It means you know why this exists https://hackage.haskell.org/package/scotty0.12/docs/WebScottyTrans.html and maybe you can even fumble through https://docs.servant.dev/en/stable/cookbook/hoistserverwithcontext/HoistServerWithContext.html and use it in your app even if you don't otherwise understand all the typelevel magic happening in Servant. You'll also understand what to do if you're faced with a type signature in IO or Maybe or whatever concrete monad and you have to integrate it with a more generalized monad. You may also start to understand why everyone is so interested in effect systems.

Eff  a functional programming language based on algebraic effect handlers
Great to see it's actively developed. And curious to see how it races with https://github.com/hasura/eff
