I've been working as a developer in NYC for almost 3 years, taking CS classes in the Masters program @ NYU right now, looking for some other functional programmers with whom to chillax.
These days I spend a lot more time with Haskell as a hobby, but I learned OCaml first (worked through half of this files.metaprl.org/doc/ocaml-book.pdf) and I like among other things how to compiler is stricter about non-exhaustive pattern matching. I was introduced to functional programming in college (they taught intro and several other classes in Scheme), and I'm looking to spend some time around people with warm fuzzy feelings about the functional paradigm; too many developers I meet seem to fear it.
good turnout, thoughtful discussion
