Lambda Jam, a new conference specifically for practicing functional programmers, has extended its call for papers until April 5th. If you are in a position where you are using a functional language in a non-trivial endeavor, consider sharing your knowledge as a conventional conference talk, a workshop or as a mentor in a “jam” session. I already see one Ohioan on the roster but I know there are more of you who are capable of representing your skills.
Lambda Jam will be held in Chicago, Illinois from July 8-10 and features a fantastic set of keynote speakers. The registration fees have not been published yet, but speakers receive free admission, hotel and flight.
