FP project wanted

From: Michiel B.

Hello all (I posted this message also on the discussion forum of the meetup.com page),

For a small group of students (2 to 4) of the Hogeschool (University of Applied Sciences) Utrecht I'm looking for a project that involves functional programming in a real world setting. I would prefer them to use Clojure (or Haskell).
They will be working on this project for half a year under my supervision and we will have regular correspondence with you and your company. During their project they will also follow some courses at the Hogeschool, but most of their time will be spend on the project.
The first few weeks/months they will be spending their time getting accustomed to the functional paradigm and gradually start working on your project.

Examples of projects we did before, but not in co-operation with a company:

* Functional programming and OO: describe the differences when building the same functionality in two different paradigms - are OO-patterns something you can re-use in functional language? - how do you design software in a functional setting?

* Clojure and the web: is a functional language suited for building a large web application, how easy is this for a beginner and how well are the libraries supported by documentation and community?

It would be great if we could do a project in co-operation with a company this time, so the project has a more real life sense to it. Please send me your proposal and I'll get back in touch with you.

Kind regards,

Michiel Borkent
