LambdaSquared is a single-track functional programming conference being held on April 26-27 2019 at Crowne Plaza in downtown Knoxville, Tennessee. As we approach year two, we’re looking to have the community come together and level up our skills together. On the first day, speakers will show us the “why” behind functional. On the second day, there are workshops where we can take the “why” and turn it into “how”.

CFP Description

There are two options for presentations, Sessions and Workshops. You will find the requirements for each listed below.

Sessions

  • Sessions are 45 minutes in length
  • The audience will consist of functional programming enthusiasts of all levels so introductory topics are encouraged!
  • Some Topics Include
    • Introductory FP concepts (Algebraic data types, composition, immutability)
    • How to learn Functional Programming / How to progress to the next level
    • Use cases for specific types (e.g. using monoids to build an extensible server library)
    • Compare/contrast style talks (e.g. Free vs MTL, Monads vs Linear Types)

As a speaker, you’ll receive the following benefits

  • Hotel room for Thursday and Friday night (if needed)
  • An all-access ticket to the conference and workshops on Saturday
  • Speaker dinner on Thursday evening
  • For those travelling from further away, we do have a travel reimbursement budget, however, the amount as of now is unknown

    • Applied Functional for the Working Developer

As a workshop organizer, you’ll receive the following benefits

  • Hotel room for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday night (if needed)
