The UK event for the Functional Programming Community.
FP Days 2012 has now finished. Feedback was very positive so we will run the event again in 2013. Sign up to our mailing list or follow @FPDays for news on our 2013 event.
Intended to be hands-on and interactive, FP Days gives you the opportunity to share experiences with others, find out more about the latest available tools and techniques, network with your peers and have a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
The event has a strong, practical focus on learning more about the principles of Functional Programming, using it effectively and exploring possibilities with current FP technologies.
Our 2012 event programme contained a mix of hands-on, case study, tutorial, keynote and panel sessions from leading FP practitioners.
