Whether you are just mildly interested in functional programming or an expert in any functional language, we want you in this group. We don't care if you use Mac or Windows, emacs or vim, notepad or Visual Studio. We will do our best to help everybody be effective and productive in whatever tools we use. We will experiment, fail, learn, and experiment again. We will fumble together to simultaneously fill and expand the void of "I know what I don't know". Don't just come to learn a new language. Come to learn a new paradigm.
