YOW! Lambda Jam is an opportunity for applied functional software developers working in languages such as Scala, Elixir, Erlang, Clojure, F# and Haskell to enhance their software development skills using the principles, practices, and tools of functional programming.

In 2021 we plan to deliver an online two-day conference featuring invited international and Australian speakers. Talks will be delivered live and followed by a Q&A via chat. We’ll schedule ample breaks so you have time to grab a coffee before networking and interacting with speakers and other attendees, and we are investigating safe and practical ways for attendees to interact face-to-face as part of the conference.
