First off I would like to give a resounding thank you to DevHub. They have proven to be an incredible patron and host to the functional programming community in Toronto. I encourage you to engage with them on social media, and benefit from their cumulation of choicely curated technical and social events.
The event is hosted at Devhub (www.devhub.ca) .

Secondly, hooray! After several months of dormancy this group is active again. We are looking for volunteers to present a round of lightning talks (feel free to reach out to me directly on here or at [masked]). Be it a technical talk, a presentation of your pet project, or even just a discussion addressing an interesting article or topic. If we don't get enough presenters I (Jonathan) will have to give a talk, and I am probably significantly more junior at haskell than you, so please volunteer. After the lightning talks we will have a hack night, where you can work on any haskell project or tutorial you want, while in good company!
6:00 - 6:15: Arrival
6:15 - 7:15: Presentations (if we get enough)
7:15 - 9:00: Hack-night
9:00 - Late: Go for drinks if there is interest
