Functional Brighton

Functional Brighton is a Brighton, UK meetup group that aims to bring together people interested in functional programming. We hope that it will complement London-based groups (eg. the London Scala User Group, Hoodlums, F#unctional Londoners, etc.), giving Londoners an excuse for a trip to the seaside and Brightonians some relief from the train. Topics for meetings could include,

Essentials of functional programming Real world experiences with functional styles Mixing functional code into existing imperative/OOP codebases Functional programming language specifics: Scala, Haskell, F#, Erlang, Ocaml, Clojure, Scheme Functional idioms in non-functional languages Static vs. dynamic typing Concurrent, parallel and distributed computing in a functional style Data visualisation, scientific programming, numerical methods, optimisation and GPUs.

    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
