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


Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
