We’re delighted to present an online version of YOW! Lambda Jam in 2020, featuring selected invited speakers. YOW! Lambda Jam is an opportunity for applied functional software developers working in languages such as Scala, Elixir, Erlang, and Haskell to enhance their software development skills using the principles, practices, and tools of functional programming.

To avoid attendee “screen fatigue” and ensure we can accommodate reasonable time slots for both speakers and attendees across time zones, our online conference will take place across three days, with talks scheduled by theme for a few hours per day. Talks will be delivered live and after each session, we’ll head over to the YOW! Lambda Jam Slack workspace for 25 minutes where you can participate in an interactive Q&A with the speaker, chat about the last talk, visit our partner channels or network in the #hallway-track.

We will offer online versions of our introductory workshops for new or intermediate functional programmers spread across two days.

So although we can’t meet face to face right now – you can still network, meet the experts and hone your skills all in one event!
