This October, we’ll be welcoming scores of engineers, technical leaders, and fans of functional programming to Cádiz, Spain for the 3rd Annual Lambda World.
Lambda World is the largest functional programming conference in Southwestern Europe and will take place Thursday, October 26th through Friday, October 27th. The event features a Typelevel unconference, a Scala Center Spree, workshops, a full day of speaker presentations on various functional programming languages and technologies, and plenty of networking opportunities and an awesome party to close things out.
Here is a preview of what we have in-store for you:
The Typelevel Unconference will run from 10:30 - 13:30 and feature presentations by speakers and attendees on Functional Programming topics and tools.
Following the lunch break, the Scala Center has organized a Spree hosted by Jorge Vicente. He’ll be introducing actionable issues and offer continuous help to anyone that needs it. Jorge’s goal is to make sure everyone enjoys hacking collaboratively on Scala ecosystem projects. You can find more information here: Scala Center Spree (Link no longer active).
Attendees can also choose to attend some of the workshops being offered (included in the ticket price):
- Teaching functional programming in the ivory tower … and in the kitchen, hosted by Juan Manuel Serrano & Pablo Trinidad
- ScalaBridge Workshop, hosted by Noel Welsh
- Don’t fear the optics, hosted by Jesus Lopez Gonzalez
- Don’t fear the monad, hosted by Antonio Leiva
- Reacive Platofrm from scratch, based on Scala, with use cases, hosted by David Urdiales-Nieto and Jose Zumaquero-Torres
- An introduction of Common Lisp, language, ecosystem, and industrial usage, hosted by Andrew Lawson
- The Fast & The Functional: C#7, hosted by Alejandro Campos Magencio
Plus more to be announced soon…
Friday will be a full day of presentations on two separate tracks - House Curry and House Howard. Doors open bright and early for breakfast at 08:00 with the opening keynote by Dr. Eugenia Cheng beginning at 09:00. There will be plenty of breaks throughout the day to grab a coffee or a bite to eat and network with speakers, sponsors, and other attendees. The midday keynote will be Bartosz Milewski with his talk, Profunctor Optics: The Categorical Approach. Presentations wrap-up at 18:30 - 19:30 with a closing keynote by Jeremy Gibbons entitled APLicative Programming with Naperian Functors.
If you’ve ever been to a 47 Degrees’ event, you’ll know we like to have a good time. This year’s closing party will be no different. Held once again at the infamous Castillo de Santa Catalina (courtesy of our sponsor, Ayuntamiento de Cádiz), we’re going to end the event in style.
Inside this old fortress built in the 17th century, attendees can enjoy a rock concert, food trucks, drinks of both the alcohol and non-alcoholic variety (whatever floats your boat). Then, when you’re properly Lambda’d out, we’ll unleash a mass of functional programmers into the streets of our beloved city of Cádiz to explore all the wonders this ancient port town has to offer.
Bringing your family?
We’re so fond of Cádiz that we want to make this programming conference a chance for your family to vacation while you code. If you’re planning on bringing your partner, kids, or both, we’ve set up some tourist activities they can take a part in during the day. If you’re bringing young kids and need cradles or strollers to help make your travel experience as easy as possible, the conference will be glad to provide them (just get in touch in advance).
Come for the conference, stay for the weekend and enjoy exploring the oldest still inhabited city in Europe.
