Are you a Flemish software developer who is curious about the use
of functional programming in mainstream programming languages like
Java and C#?

Then we kindly invite you to:

Functional Programming in Industry
Free Industry Workshop + Optional Crash Courses
KU Leuven Department of Computer Science, September 13, 2017

This event consists of two parts: two Crash Courses in the morning, and the
main event, the Free Industry Workshop in the afternoon.
The optional crash courses bring you up to speed with the functional
programming basics in the language of your choice (C#/Java).
The afternoon workshop gives an idea of how functional programming is used in
the Flemish software industry and abroad. We kick off the afternoon with an
introduction by the academic partners. Then three industrial developers provide a
testimony of their functional programming endeavours and we end with a keynote
by Noel Markham (47 Degrees London and Scala enthusiast).  Finally, you are
welcome for informal discussion at the reception.

This workshop is the culmination of the vLambda project (
vLambda is a technology transfer (Tetra) project sponsored by Vlaio to help the
Flemish software industry in adopting the functional programming methodology in
the context of familiar mainstream programming languages like Java and C#.  The
vLambda team is headed by prof. dr. Kris Aerts (senior lecturer at KU Leuven
Technology Campus in Diepenbeek) and prof. dr. ir. Tom Schrijvers (senior
research professor at KU Leuven). Drop us a line at if
you want to know more.
