500 Gothic Road, Crested Butte, CO
Escape the hustle of everyday coding with LambdaConf’s first winter retreat, held in Crested Butte, Colorado—a mountain town nestled in the heart of the Rocky Mountains!
Leisurely explore selected topics in functional programming from invited LambdaConf Guides. Pair with attendees on interesting projects. Apply what you have learned from conferences, books, and blogs. And start 2017 with fresh passion for writing software in ways better than you ever thought possible.
• Takes place in Crested Butte, a beautiful mountain town. Crested Butte has numerous shops and restaurants, as well as opportunities for downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, sledding, snowshoeing, and much more. Experience Colorado's legendary and majestic winters for yourself!
• Original content from hand-invited guides. These LambdaConf Guides have been selected based on their teaching skills, knowledge areas, and popularity with attendees. You'll find guides with backgrounds in Scala, Clojure, Haskell, Agda, PureScript, and more.
• Plenty of time for collaboration and peer-learning. Scheduled content consumes only a few hours each day, allowing plenty of time for learning from guides and fellow attendees, collaborating on interesting projects, and sharing your own knowledge with fellow attendees.
• Includes 4 nights of accommodations, full breakfast, and full lunch. Self-pay for dinner and activities, but all the other meals are included, and you get to stay in the same beautiful hotel & spa with all other attendees and guides!
• Five continuously booked conference rooms and several lounges. Wifi is included and projectors can be used by attendees outside the hours of scheduled content. Bring some fun problems or side projects and expect to make some serious progress with help from some of the most experienced engineers working in functional programming.
• Legendary LambdaConf swag. Expect the "cold weather" edition of LambdaConf swag, as well as an early edition of an educational game that's going to change the way people master functional programming!
• Childcare available. Don't let little ones deter you from leveling up. You'll have the option of signing up for childcare for any of the days of the retreat, either half day or full day. There's also plenty of outdoor activities for older kids and teens.
