Two-day Haskell tutorial, Copenhagen, September 13-14

This year CUFP is putting on a series of longer tutorials to introduce functional programming languages in
depth, and in particular the organisers are delighted to announce a TWO DAY Haskell tutorial, taught by
leading experts and educators Jeremy Gibbons (Oxford) and Simon Marlow (Microsoft Research). 

This two-day tutorial is designed to introduce you to Haskell without assuming that you know anything
about the language in advance, and will introduce you to the underlying ideas and concepts of Haskell as
well as giving you hands-on experience of programming in Haskell.

So, if you're interested we do hope that you are able to attend, or if not, that you'll pass this information
on to colleagues and friends who might be interested. There's more information and registration
instructions at

Hoping to see you there!

Pure functional programming is about programming with expressions rather than actions, data rather than
control. Many programs are more naturally expressed in this way, and functional programs are often an
order of magnitude shorter than equivalent imperative programs - just as programs in traditional
high-level languages like C and Java are typically much shorter and clearer than their equivalents in
assembly language.
