Ignite your functional programming skills at the second annual LambdaConf — the largest interdisciplinary functional programming conference in the Mountain West.
With more than 40 speakers and two and a half days worth of content, LambdaConf brings together attendees with a diverse set of skills and backgrounds, united by a common passion for the power of functional programming.
Students, researchers, and programming professionals of all persuasions will find relevant topics, including introductory material on functional programming, PL and type theory, industry case studies, language workshops, and library tutorials.
In addition to two and a half days of content, the conference has ample opportunity for networking, including five group meals, one drink social, one group activity (hiking or tea), a half day unconference, and unscheduled time Saturday evening.
