Did you really write this in "one" weekend?

Excellent work!

Would you mind posting about how someone would go about getting from a "medium beginner" Haskell knowledge to implementing something like this?

Not even close to one weekend - I meant "weekend" in the tongue-in-cheek sense that all good weekend hacks spill over into multiple years.

[Write yourself a scheme in 48 hours](http://en.wikibooks.org/wiki/Write_Yourself_a_Scheme_in_48_H...) was very helpful for seeing a compile interpreter at a high level, [Typing Haskell in Haskell](http://web.cecs.pdx.edu/~mpj/thih/) was a fantastic resource for implementing DHM - the NYC Haskell community was fantasically helpful as well. Best way to learn anything in Haskell, or any language IMO, is to just start writing it :)
