• What we'll do
Meet fellow FP-Heads! The FPNCR Community aims to provide a space for functional programming enthusiasts to interact regularly. We will be organizing our first meetup for 2018 in Gurgaon on 23rd January.

The meetup is beginner friendly, and will also have experts with real world FP experience who can help you get started. So if you or your company are looking to get into any form of Functional programming, this is a great place to start!

The meetup has been sponsored by S&P Global, and they will be providing the venue and snacks.

• What to bring
Experience with at least one programming language is required (doesn’t have to be a functional programming language).
Please bring your own laptop if you want to follow along with building a complete application in Haskell.

* Agenda
2:00PM - 2:30PM –

Introductory talk – Functional programming – Why and How.

Geared towards people used to imperative programming languages. Using Javascript as a common base, this talk will gently introduce you to the concept of Functional Programming, and how and where it can be used.

2:30PM – 2:40PM – Coffee/Pizza Break.

2:40PM – 4:30PM –

Workshop – Supercharged Rapid Web Development with Functional Programming!

Here we kick it into high gear! If the previous talk was a lot of theory, this is where you get to apply those ideas in practice. You will build a complete application from scratch.

4:30PM Onwards – Coffee/Pizza Break.
You are welcome to hang back if you want to have longer discussions on FP.
