Conference on Data Science and Functional Programming in London on March 14th
Are you interested in exploring the challenges and opportunities of Functional Programming in Data Science?
Keen to learn how to put functional concepts in the database, or how to develop effective parallel programs using advanced refactoring technology? Would you like to explore how to blend a domain-specific language into a host language and how to achieve language integrated query?
Then join us at #fpX
, the Functional Programming eXchange, to explore cross functional solutions to interesting challenges in Data Science and #Functional
Scala, Clojure, Lisp, Haskell, Ocaml, Erlang, F#... whatever your discipline, if you are keen to discover innovative approaches and practical solutions in functional programming to address interesting challenges in data science, this conference is for you!
Rather than focusing on the merits of one language above another, we'll join up forces to explore cross platform approaches during a full day of learning, brainstorming, and coding with 100+ functional programmers and data scientists.PROGRAM
KEYNOTE: A PRACTICAL THEORY OF LANGUAGE-INTEGRATED QUERY BY PHILIP WADLER
We are very proud to open the conference with a keynote by Philip Wadler this year, who will explore a practical theory of language-integrated query based on quotation and normalisation of quoted terms.
