We're a group of passionate geeks looking to learn more about functional programming and how it can help us in our professional lives. Members range from absolute beginners through to advanced users. Everyone at any level is welcome to attend and/or speak.

Monthly meetups are sponsored and pizza is provided.

Lots of us hang out in the #bfpg IRC channel on Freenode, and are happy to answer questions, throw ideas around and generally banter.

Come along and bring your friends! We look forward to seeing you there.

The BFPG Organisers.
