Hi everyone. I thought we'd re-re-resurrect Functional Brighton in October with something a little different... a reading group.

Miran Lipovaca's Learn You a Haskell for Great Good (http://learnyouahaskell.com/chapters)is widely regarded as the way to learn Haskell. In this reading group we'll tackle the book several chapters at a time, reading the content over a fortnight and meeting afterwards to discuss the concepts and hack on sample code.

Haskell has often been referred to as the Latin of functional programming languages. It serves as inspiration for many other modern languages and is used for listings and examples in countless research papers. So let's learn us a Haskell and discover what enlightenment feels like.

We'll hold the first session on 18th October, covering chapters 1 to 2 of the book (http://learnyouahaskell.com/chapters). Be sure to read the chapters prior to the session so we're all equally confused ready for the discussion to begin :)

Special thanks to Pure360, who will be sponsoring beverages at the event.
