The Queensland Functional Programming Lab, a Data61/CSIRO and Queensland Government initiative, is running a free 3-day Functional Programming workshop in Melbourne, 9-11 September 2019. This is the traditional introductory workshop that has been run by Data61 for many years. This track is targeted toward people who have some basic programming experience, but little or no exposure to Functional Programming.

Anyone who is interested in Functional Programming (FP) is encouraged to register. The introductory workshop track is designed to be inclusive and requires no prior experience with functional programming. Each session will be instructed by team members of the QFPL and you will be using the Haskell programming language to help you along your path of FP discovery.

The course runs from 0900 to 1700 (UTC+10) on all three days and will be hosted at Data61's Clayton office.

Participants will be required to bring a suitable development machine (portable) for working through the exercises. You will also need to install the Glasgow Haskell Compiler version 8 or higher on that machine.

You will require a local clone on your development machine of the repository at

There are no other primary requirements. Reading up on Haskell syntax prior to the introductory material will be beneficial to progress.

We are also running our applied course. Are you keen to attend, but unsure which track is best for you? Take a look at this article:
