Next Meetup

Open Programming Session (Wednesday)
Work on your programming projects in the company of like-minded people. [Cross-posted from Code Self Study ( You can view a longer RSVP list there.] This meetup will be a self-directed programming session without a fixed plan or leader. Just bring whatever tutorials, books, courses, or projects that you're working on. You can meet people, find a partner for pair programming, talk about technology, or just work on a project or tutorial. All levels are welcome. Optional activity: each Wednesday meetup has a featured programming puzzle and algorithm that you can work on with other attendees if you would like. See this page for a tentative calendar of featured puzzles: (Or choose your own puzzles on CodeWars: ) Sometimes there are short lightning talk presentations (5-10 minutes long) at the beginning of the meetup. To submit a presentation idea, fill out this form: Sometimes the meetings are quiet and sometimes there is talking. If you are depending on silence, you might want to bring headphones or earplugs. We often walk over to a nearby cafe for more programming at 1 pm. Parking Information: There is free parking on the back streets near the library. If you head west on Russell Street for a couple of blocks, you should be able to find free all-day parking. There is also free parking to the north and east of the library. Keep an eye out for street sweeping signs. Here is a map that shows a free parking area marked in gray:

What we're about

This is a friendly group in Berkeley for people who are interested in functional programming.

I'm interested in working through some books :

• Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs (

• An Intro to Functional Programming through Lambda Calculus (

• Haskell Programming (

• and more...

Our Code Self Study group ( already meets twice per week with an open format where people can work on projects or study any kind of programming. The idea for this separate functional programming study group is that we'll pick a specific book and work through it on Sundays beginning in the spring (2016).

When you sign-up, fill out your profile or send me a message to tell me what you would like to get out of the group. You can also sign up for notifications about online events (

All levels of experience are welcome. If you're experienced, you can help guide the beginners. I've worked through part of SICP, but I'm still a beginner.

Hope to see you at a meetup soon!
