Janrain offers user management services that include single sign-on,
social login, and profile storage. We have recently begun using Haskell
extensively to implement our products, and would like to share what the
experience has been like.


In this talk we will give a technical demonstration of Capture, whose backend is
written in Haskell, discuss some of the implementation details of Capture, and
look at some of the joys and pitfalls that we experienced.

engineering from The University of Kansas.
