Tony Morris speaking at Functional Conf

“I often find people a little bit apprehensive when thinking of submitting a proposal to Functional Conf - they're not sure what they're getting themselves into. But the conference has a support team, so if you've never done it before, we’ll help you. On the other hand, if you've done it lots of times, there are a lot of cool and helpful people here, and you should come!”

-Tony Morris (Sr. Software Engineer at Queensland FP Lab)

"This was my first time speaking at any conference. The program committee was really helpful, they had a shepherding session in which very experienced people actually went over my presentation and gave me feedback, which was very necessary for me.”

-Sujatha Hemmady (Tech Lead at Redbus)

Functional Conf 2019 attracted 407 Participants with 50 Unique Roles from 50+ Organisations in 10 countries. We hosted 35 speakers from 10 countries.

This year we’re looking forward to bringing the community back together, but in light of the uncertainties around Covid, we’ll be hosting the conference online.

“Functional Conference has been amazing to me because I've been able to make connections that I think are going to last a lifetime.”

-Bruce Tate (Author, 7 Languages in 7 Weeks)

Aa0ron Hsu speaking at Functional Conf

“Functional Conf was this really engaging, inspiring sort of place where everybody was there with an open mind, hoping to learn new things and push the boundaries of what was possible and really trying to just enjoy programming again.”

-Aaron Hsu (Computing Researcher, Dyalog)

Maqbool  speaking at Functional Conf

"This conference has an amazing lineup of speakers. These are the people I look up to while learning functional programming. The FP community is very helpful. I have asked really stupid questions to lots of people and they have kindly answered all my queries and doubts."

-Maqbool (Student / Freelancer)

This year we are focusing on the themes of:

  • Applying FP - Applying FP sessions are targeted at Developers who understand the basics of FP, maybe even practice some FP at work. Helping them understand how they can apply even more FP concepts more at work.
  • FP Bootcamp - FP Bootcamp is targeted at Developers who want to kick start their FP journey.
  • Mastering FP - Mastering FP sessions are targeted at Developers who already apply a decent amount of FP concepts at work. Developers who want to go deeper and maybe even become a contributor to a FP language or library.
