About Us

Functional Conf is a hard-core tech conference that aims to bring together top-notch developers and thinkers building tomorrow's technology using Functional Programming concepts.

The initial idea of Functional Conf was conceived by Naresh Jain and friends. The aim was to build a functional programming community in India.

Core Principles of Functional Conf:

  • Quality OVER Quantity: At Functional Conf, we believe in staying small and providing a richer experience to the participants. It's never about how many talks we can jam into the program or how many participants we can gather. It's about building a small, but strong community.
  • Zero Marketing: You cannot pay to get a speaking slot. Conference talks are never sold to sponsors.
  • Respect Privacy: The conference participant database is never sold or given to sponsors. We respect and protect your privacy.
  • Tech OVER Process: Talks are in general code-heavy, not process-oriented. If you are interested in Process, you should check Agile India Conference.
  • Moderately Priced: At Functional Conf we strive really hard to make the conference affordable. Our aim is to ensure that interested participants should be able pay out of their pocket, without having to depend on their company for sponsorship.
  • Networking: At Functional Conf you will learn as much (if not more) by meeting other practitioners, making connections with them, sharing your ideas, and building a strong community.
