Hi everyone!

The first meeting will be at my place in Hillevåg. There is plenty of parking and convenient bus access. If you know whether you can make it, please indicate with the buttons.

In this first meeting to get to know eachother I will give a short and easy introduction to Haskell and perhaps show off a project or two. I am no expert, but will also attempt to answer questions. The goal being that everyone will learn enough to, if they want, get started with Haskell for something fun or useful - and know where to look for more.

If you have not had any experience with functional programming, and can't find time to experiment either, I can at least promise that this meeting will affect how you organize and write your imperative code in for example Java or C#. So there should be something for everyone.

Let's also try to find a topic for next time. Perhaps someone can do the same kind of intro on a different language. I sure would like to see that.

If you want to get a head start:
