“The Essence and Origins of Functional Reactive Programming”

Are you a functional programmer looking to improve your skills in languages like Clojure, Scala, Erlang, Haskell, Racket, OCaml or F#?

If so, then Lambda Jam is a new conference that can take your skills to the next level. This is not your traditional conference of sitting and listening – a significant portion of each day will be devoted to hands-on practice or workshops. We aim to stretch your skills and teach you something new!
