Bangalore Functional Programmers

Community meant for those interested in learning or exploring the following languages:

Haskell, OCaml, Erlang, F#, F*, Clojure/CL/Scheme/Racket, Scala, Purescript, Idris, Agda, Coq.

Meetup group for people interested in functional programming in Bangalore. We will not be concentrating on any one particular language. The idea will be that the interested members work on their own time on a functional language of their choice. Then when we meet weekly or bi-weekly discuss or present on a topic of the member's choice in that language.

This will not be hand holding group, the members are expected to work on their own regularly but this is to act as a support system and bring people together with similar interests and share learning and ideas. Online groups already exist but we want to meet on a semi regular basis if not every week. Also locally either the experts are completely busy on their own and the beginners are left to fend for themselves alone, so the group is to bring together the functional programming enthusiasts and meet offline. Note the stress on offline. Existing communities are also either not that active or only focused on a particular language. You also need to specify the language you will choose since you will be working on it and speaking on it as your turn comes to contribute. We don't intend to subvert existing groups but only be more active and meet in real.

Join the telegram group "Functional Programming NCR" ( and "Haskell India Group" ( for discussions and help. Twitter handle is "blrfunprog". You can reach out to me on twitter at "sanchayan_maity".
