Group for people interested in functional programming principles and practice. The goal is to learn, explore and solve hard and fun challenges with this knowledge. 

All functional / multi-paradigm languages such as Scala, Erlang, Haskell, Lisp, Clojure, F# or OCaml are welcome. But this knowledge will help you become a better programmer even if you work in python, javascript, java or other languages. 

This meetup is going to be hands on, not just talking, so bring your machine. 

Recommended learning / reading:

online courses:

Functional Programming Principles in Scala

Principles of Reactive Programming

Design of Computer Programs

Paradigms of Computer Programming

books:

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.
