A study/user group exploring the world of functional programming based in Portland, Oregon. The group welcomes programmers interested in all functional languages, including Haskell, Erlang, OCaml, Scala, and others. The group meets regularly and provides presentations, demos and discussions applicable to all skill levels, from newbies and experts. The meetings are usually on the second Monday of the month.


Abstract: F# is a typed functional programming language for the .NET Framework, based on OCaml. F# combines functional programming with the runtime support, libraries, tools, and object model of .NET. Understand how F# tackles difficult development issues with ease, such as asynchronous programming and concurrency. Bask in the elegance of succinct, declarative code. Featuring the latest bits from Visual Studio 2010 Beta 1 -- don't miss it!
