Quick show of hands: how many people on this list know Haskell? I don't. The closest I could come is maybe some OCaml. (Erlang is on my 'to learn' list).

I was listening to the TeachMeToCode podcast and he was interviewing a guy who started a group in Vancouver who said that he would go to meetings even if he was the only one there an eventually it took off.? If we're persistent and evangelize then the numbers will be there.

Hi All,

I'd be happy to fire up the meetings again if we can get some
participants. Like Bernie said, he or I were often the only ones doing

Bernie,
On the developer search, I think it may be that the framework is too
popular. Consider,

It may be best to cultivate your own developers from people who show
the correct attitude, aptitude and core skills necessary. I can tell
you from experience that recruiting in Jacksonville is very difficult.
=> is a much bigger draw for any already talented rails devs and they
don't even have to move.
