The BFPG are coming together with GOTO Chicago in a first-time functional programming breakfast meetup courtesy of Dave Thomas!
Dave Thomas (http://www.davethomas.net/) of Bederra Labs, organiser of the YOW! Conference (http://www.yowconference.com.au/) and long-time partner of the BFPG has organised a GOTO meetup (http://gotonightchicago.eventbrite.com/) in Chicago with some stellar presentations from none other than Erik Meijer and Rich Hickey.
The BFPG has been invited to attend via a web conference so that we too can enjoy these talks from these functional programming figureheads.
Full detail of the speakers and their talks are available here: http://gotonightchicago.eventbrite.com/
This will be the first meeting in what we hope to be many that will bring together development communities from across the globe. We hope you can find the time to come and be part of it.
Thank you to Microsoft Brisbane for providing us with the venue and their ongoing support to our local technical communities.
