Functional Programming in Scala ( : Beginner's Workshop

Note: We will meet at a new location, in Boston.

The goal of this meetup is to collaboratively progress through exercises in the book. It will more or less be in the format of a group project to solve the exercises. Questions can be asked at any time.
We will be starting with the code from the book as seen in the git repo ( The tentative goal is to get through chapter 4.

Finally, this book is written by fellow Boston-area Scala enthusiasts, so let's show some love and get everyone on board with FP FTW.

The workshop will be led by Dan Billings.
