Functional meets parallel

It's often claimed that functional languages are particularly well-suited to computationally intensive problems because they encourage programming styles which are easily parallelizable.

For this month's Functional Brighton meetup we're going to take close look at how this plays out in our languages of choice: in Scala's parallel collections, in parallel Haskell and in F#/C# via parallel LINQ (volunteers for other languages most welcome ... please post to the mailing list if you'd like to contribute). We'll stick to the dojo style that we've been using for most of the meetups so far, so expect this session to be more hands on than slideware.
