- BFPG March 2021 social
Newcomers are welcome! Come along and discuss your current FP projects, explorations and struggles. Bring a laptop or questions, if you'd like. We will eat some food and (for those so inclined) drink some beverages. And we will also discuss restarting talks and hack nights again soon.
- BFPG Friendly Park Gathering
Let's make the most of the open air and reduced restrictions to start meeting in person again. We'll have a chat about what we've been up to FP-wise (or not), and what we'd all like to see from BFPG in the new year.
Meet at 1430 or so on[masked] at the Lake Precinct, Roma St Gardens:
Bring food and drink for yourself. We'll keep this one fairly casual, but think about packing a notebook in case any technical discussions take off.
- BFPG joins forces with FP-Syd!
Something that came up as part of Lambda Jam online is that it is pretty silly to be running lots of online meetups when we could just consolidate these and mingle more as an Australian FP Community while we cannot meet in person.
So Jack Kelly is speaking at FP-Syd this Wednesday to kick this all off. Please go over and RSVP at FP-Syd so you can access the zoom link and get a slack invite.
Catch y'all on Wednesday to catch up with you and the Sydney folk! :)
- Getting close to the conceptual metal: Lambda calculus and Scott encoding
The Lambda calculus is a universal model of computation, and Scott encoding is a method of representing any algebraic data type within it.
If that sounds interesting, come, share a buffer as we see how much we can build using nothing but hot air.
- Hack Night Feb 2020
BFPG Hack Night returns!
Come along and hack on whatever you want. Ask questions. Join a project. Do some coursework / workshop exercises. Share your ideas, discoveries, frustrations, projects.
We are likely to go somewhere for eats/drinks after 20:00+10:00.
Hard limit of 12 people. (We'll find another place for future events if we keep maxing out The Edge.)
