Overview

YOW! Lambda Jam returns in 2022

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.

Since 2013, YOW! Lambda Jam has been the go-to conference for functional programmers in Australia. This year you will have the chance to learn and share with functional programmers from around the globe by joining us online at our 2-day conference, featuring invited International and Australian Experts.

This year’s YOW! Lambda Jam will take place online.

Talks will be delivered live.

At Skills Matter, we’ve chosen to see the events of the past year as a challenge to make our content and community more inclusive and accessible to all. Beyond the COVID‑19 pandemic, we have a vision of a community where knowledge sharing and skills transfer are not limited by physical barriers.

We are excited about the opportunity to truly welcome the functional programming community to this year’s Lambda Jam, no matter where you are in the world. We hope to see you there!
