- Melbourne Functional Programming Autumn Festival
"Melbourne Functional Programming Autumn Festival" (Well, not quite, but pretty close.) PLEASE NOTE, PLEASE NOTE, PLEASE NOTE, PLEASE NOTE, PLEASE NOTE: RSVPing here IS NOT ENOUGH!!!! Please register using the eventbrite links!!!! This is a big year for Functional Programming in Melbourne: YOW! Lambda Jam here soon (13–15 May), and Compose::Melbourne later in the year. With generous support from YOW!, Compose::Melbourne will be running a couple of free events in conjunction with Lambda Jam. Both events are at the conference venue, Pullman Melbourne Albert Park Hotel. 1. Hang Out And Hack (Monday, 13 May, 8.00am till 5.30pm) In conjunction with YOW! Lambda Jam, Compose::Melbourne will be running an all-day Hang Out And Hack session, on the same day as Lambda Jam's "Welcome to FP Day". Bring your laptop if you have one, learn and work on Functional Programming. We'll run "office hours" (people can request help on particular topics, or offer to help others); lightning talks; and generally we'll hang out and hack together. Come for the whole day, or come just for part of the day as suits you. This is a free event, open to the whole Functional Programming community, beginners or experts, whether or not you are attending the main Lambda Jam conference on 14th & 15th. Unlike the paid workshops, the free Hang Out And Hack will not be catered, so attendees will need to make their own arrangements for food; there are a number of places within the venue and surrounds, or feel free to BYO. Please register for your free Hang Out And Hack ticket (using the link below) so we can get an idea of numbers and plan activities appropriately. https://www.eventbrite.com.au/e/compose-hangout-and-hack-day-tickets-60608332153 2. Compose::Melbourne 2019 Launch Party (Tuesday, 14th May, 5.25pm till 6.30pm) As customary, Compose::Melbourne will hold our launch party — this year in conjunction with the Lambda Jam Conference Drinks & Networking. So, come along, celebrate Functional Programming in good company, hear about what we have planned for Compose::Melbourne this year, and get together with the wider Australian and international FP community attending Lambda Jam. This is a free event for the Melbourne FP community. If you're already registered for the Lambda Jam conference, just show up. But if you're not already registered for Lambda Jam, you will need to register for the Launch and get a free ticket, for catering purposes, via the special link below. See you there! https://yowlambdajam2019.eventbrite.com.au/?discount=COMPOSELAUNCH (The promo code, COMPOSELAUNCH, makes available an otherwise hidden ticket. You'll still have to go through a few steps to get your ticket.) Thanks to YOW! for support! Or you can partake of the full Autumn FP experience by attending the Lambda Jam conference, or a workshop on "Welcome to FP Day", or both.

Compose::Melbourne is an activity of the Melbourne Functional Programming Association Incorporated, Victorian registered number A[masked]W.
- Petri Nets Discussion - MHUG
Petri Nets have been getting a bit of buzz lately, and it might be interesting to look at how they relate to category theory and how we could leverage the idea in our Haskell programs. https://johncarlosbaez.wordpress.com/2011/01/18/petri-nets/ This will be a group discussion and brainstorming session, please come along. Suitable for beginners to advanced attendees - let's learn together!
