Do you want to be in this group? We are going to start to use it for virtual office hours, a way for people in the group to interact more frequently, to host a hangout about a Clojure related topic and let folks sign up to to come. I don't want to spam folks so if you'd rather not be part of this group please let me know and I'll remove you. If you would like to be a part of this group please know we welcome members outside of the Denver area, anyone who is interested in Clojure or would like to help with Clojure is more than welcome.

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 Programming!

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.

Other talks:
- ParaForming: Forming parallel functional  programs using refactoring, by Kevin Hammond
- Build your own liSP great justice, by Bodil stokke
- Data Science using functional programming by Amanda Laucher
- Teaching an old dog new tricks: wrapping an imperative API in a Functional one, by Chris Marshall
- Railway Oriented Programming, by Scott Wlaschin
- My other operating system is a Mirage by Anil Madhavapeddy
- Quickchecking Riak, by John Hughes

Would anyone like to pair on https://github.com/denofclojure/surlybird? Hit me up on IRC (freenode #denofclojure)

Look forward to learning what part of Open Trip Planner we want to use.

clone git@github.com/denofclojure/authorized_keys.git if you want to remote pair. If your public key isn't in the repo, let us know.

Pumped to 'attend' via hangout.  It's a bitch of a drive for me to get down from Boulder, but this will work great!

So functional, even our hangouts are recursive

I'll hopefully be joining in the online hangout meetup today!

Aaaah... I wonder how I got in here. Not even remotely close to Denver in the physical world :)
