Manchester Lambda Lounge

The λ lounge meets monthly to talk about and popularise new ways of thinking about computation. Frequent topics include functional programming, type systems, programming language design and aspects of computer science. We are programming language agnostic, traditionally focused on exploring functional programming though we are open to hosting more diverse talks on computer science topics.

We were born from the Manchester Clojure Dojo, when we decided there would be more demand for a broader group focusing on functional programming in general.  We asked politely and took the name from the American revolutionaries, of the original Lambda Lounge in St Louis. Our logo was designed by the incredibly talented @hltn.

Stay informed

Join our Google Group, and participate in Manchester’s premiere (it’s easy when you’re the only one) Functional Programming community. Joining the Google Group is the best way to stay informed on our future meetings, follow up with people after our events, and to help us plan future meetings.

Want to talk?

Our main focus is on functional programming, esoteric languages & computer science, however we’re a diverse group so if you want to talk the chances are we’ll want to listen!

You can submit ideas for talks, either through the contact form on our website, or through our Google Group.
