Functional Programming Principles in Scala, part 1

As you may know by now, Coursera is once again running their Functional Programming Principles in Scala course, taught by the one and only Martin Odersky. We'll be taking this course together, so if you've been getting excited about learning Scala and functional programming and want to do it alongside some experienced Scala developers working on the same exercises, now is the time!

Our May meeting takes place smack dab in the middle of the course, likely right around the due date of the second or third assignment. Our June meeting takes place during the last week of the course, likely around the time of the last two assignments. So, we'll be reviewing the recent and upcoming assignments for each of these meetings as a group and learning from each others experiences and solutions.

Come learn functional programming with us, it will be a blast!

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
