Abstract: NICTA will be hosting a hands-on, three day Introduction to Functional Programming, for interested participants.
We will be using the Haskell programming language for our journey over the three days and this session requires no prior experience with functional programming.
You will be required to bring a suitable development machine (portable) for working through the exercises. You will also need to install Glasgow Haskell Compiler (http://www.haskell.org/ghc/) version 7.8 or higher on that machine. There are no other primary requirements.
Each session will be instructed by Tony Morris (NICTA) to help you along your path of FP discovery, wherever that might be.
