The Winnipeg Functional Programming Group meets every month to month and a half to discuss various topics in the field of Functional Programming. The group is language agnostic, and suitable for novice and experienced alike. WfPG is a great place to both learn about or expand and share your knowledge of functional programming. Our mandate is to create a friendly place to learn. If you've wanted to get into Functional Programming but have been turned off by various online communities, then this group provides the opportunity to learn face-to-face with those willing to help. All Developers are welcome, Java, Ruby, Scala, Python, Haskell, .NET, heck we'll even take you COBOL folk! All you need is a good attitude and you'll fit in just fine. The current location for our group is the Investors Group building at the corner of Portage Avenue and Memorial Blvd.
