Hello, my name is Alexander Granin, and this is the campaign to support my book "Functional Design and Architecture" that I'm working on. This is a book about the practices and approaches to create applications using pure functional language such as Haskell.

I'm an experienced software developer, researcher, writer and speaker. I'm passionate about functional programming and Haskell, and my mission is to make functional programming more attractive and accessible for all. To achieve this, I'm researching many advanced techniques of software development in functional languages and presenting the results to the community as technical articles, conference talks and showcase projects.

The book "Functional Design and Architecture" is the most valuable thing I ever made. It aims to consolidate all the knowledge about how to create big applications in pure functional manner. This area is not yet covered well, but the community has invented a lot of approaches, and we need to make a comprehensive source of knowledge as it was done for Object-Oriented Programming already.

The book is 50% written and published online, and I'm highly interested in finishing it. But writing the text is not the only thing I should do. To prove that the main topics are valid, I'm developing a showcase project "Andromeda" that is based on these techniques. So I would like to work on the book more, and this needs a sponsorship as it's really can't be done other way around. It took more than year to write these five chapters, and this doesn't include polishing and post-production. So I expect to write the rest five chapters in year, and then 6 more months will be needed to post-process this raw material into a real book.

The book is free. All the chapters will be available online. When the book is finished, I'll try also to publish it in paper.

I would really appreciate your help for giving this project  a light. Not only me; the whole community of developers will benefit from this work.

This is a really huge help. Thank you.


I like monads very much. Monads... magical and mysterious concept, they are so beautiful, so cool and so powerful! The future is coming: monads will be the next big thing. Supporting this book, you make this future even closer!
