If you are interested in Functional Programming (Clojure, Haskell, Scala, Erlang, or any other language), please join us!
What is it?
New Orleans Functional Club is a meeting of functional minds. Come meet other functional programming enthusiasts, teach something you know, and learn something as well. Our meetings are structured according to the "Office Hours" model.
When you get there, you will be given a name tag and asked to write two things on the board: something you know and want to teach, and something you want to learn. Don’t know anything (yet) that you feel comfortable teaching? No problem, just bring your curiosity and sign up for something to learn.
You then find someone you can help or who can help you, and you get to learning and teaching. Our aim is to foster community and learning. The group hopes to be a great place to meet others with similar interests and a springboard for more projects.
When and where is it?
NoFun is proudly incubated at New Orleans' Tuesday Hack Night on the first Tuesday of every month at 4.0 Schools, at 643 Magazine St. Second floor.

We are located in the small meeting room in the back. Just ask around.
What should I bring?
