Getting started with Haskell

Join us at Jane Street for a hackathon-style workshop designed to help you get started with Haskell. We'll have experienced Haskell programmers on hand who can walk you through the basics of getting a compiler and REPL set up, installing libraries, and starting on your first project - whether it's a website, a game, or anything else.


Jane Street has generously offered to provide us with the necessary space to hold our meetup and some food. They are deeply invested in functional programming and use OCaml, a functional language in the same family as Haskell, for pretty much everything they do.

    This was an awesome hacking session. Learned quite a bit of hands-on Haskell programming tips and techniques thanks the wonderful expertise of the Haskell meetup organizers, most of which present. The deep philosophical issues were also addressed in also in the wee hours of the morning at the bar!

    I got some of my most pressing questions about how to code certain things in haskell answered and even learned a new function.

    Great meet up. Learned a lot. Just realized I did not pay for my coke at the bar afterwards. Next drink is on me to whoever paid for my coke.

    Thanks to all the organisers! Haskell can be a tricky language to get up to speed with so it's great to have some help :)

    Since there are twice as many people singning up as spots, are there
    plans to move it to a bigger room or something to that effect?

    I am especially asking because, while I am quite interested in attending, it's also a considerable trip for me so it would make no sense to travel for two hours only to find out at the door that there's no room for me and have to turn right around and go back home.

      Hi Raymond,

      There's been a huge amount of interest in this meetup, and unfortunately we won't have enough space to host people who aren't on the RSVP list. However, we're already planning to do the meetup again soon. Hopefully we'll be able to see you next time!

      I would be interested in going to a repeat of the event. Please let me know when you plan to hold it and I'll make it if it doesn't conflist with anything immovablle.

    Just want to point out that google is showing a location on Staten Island when visiting the map link on this meetup page, which I think is incorrect. The actual location looks to be on the corner of Broad and South street at the tip of Manhattan.

      Thanks for pointing that out! I'm not sure why that's happening, but I've updated the address to hopefully be more accurate. For anyone who's looking it up, the building is down on Whitehall Street in Manhattan.

    Would absolutely love to attend but it clashes with a big Moz talk: https://www.eventbrite.com/event/8812609753
