pdxfunc: Portland Functional Programming Study Group

Collective Agency Downtown
511 SW 10th Ave, Suite 1108
Portland, OR 97205, US (map)

Access Notes

We're on the 11th floor, come on up. Non-members park bikes outside the building. Paid car parking is connected to the building, and a SmartPark is two blocks away near Target. Located on SW 10th and Washington, between Target and Powell's, on the big block of food carts. We're on the Streetcar line, a block from the Red and Blue MAX lines, and a 5-minute walk from the Green, Yellow, Orange lines.

This month only, we will be meeting in a different room. After you buzz in at the door and are let upstairs (via the stairs or elevator), you'll need to turn right, turn right at the hallway, turn right at the next hallway, past the bathrooms, and the room will be on your right.



Echo Nolan will be presenting "Haskell, the Bad Parts".

There was desire expressed last time for a Haskell talk focusing on practical work. I wrote a tiny - 103 lines - utility for setting up port forwarding last April. It's an example of a working program and I have all kinds of complaints about how you have to do things in the language.

I do love the language though.

See the mailing list or the Meetup event (linked above) for details on this month's agenda, or to talk to us. Attendance is limited at this venue. RSVP via the Meetup group.

ABOUT THE GROUP: Join programmers, researchers and enthusiasts to discuss functional programming. pdxfunc is 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, Lisp, Clojure, Scala, Oz, Agda, Idris, and others. The group meets regularly on the second Monday of the month for presentations, demos and discussions applicable to all skill levels, from newbies and experts.
