  Dutch HUG Day

  24 April 2010

  Ordina office
  Niewegein, The Netherlands

***  Please register!
***  Email Sean Leather <leather at cs.uu.nl> by 20 April!


To celebrate our first anniversary, the Dutch Haskell Users Group (HUG)
invites Haskell and functional programming enthusiasts in the Netherlands
and surrounding area to an afternoon symposium. The Dutch HUG is an informal
group with monthly meetings including talks on novel applications of Haskell
and socializing in the neighborhood pub. The group was founded on Sunday,
April 19, 2009 at the Haskell Hackathon hosted in Utrecht. After a
successful year, we renew the trend with the Dutch HUG Day.


***  Please send an email to Sean Leather <leather at cs.uu.nl> by Tuesday, 20
April!  ***

Join us for a half day of fun and functional programming! We have some great
"praatjes" (the Dutch word for talks) lined up. (Just in case you were
confused by my "Call for Praatjes," all talks will be in English.) Along
with talks, you can join us afterwards for a buffet dinner, graciously
provided by our sponsor Ordina.

The registration will allow Ordina to know how many people to expect and to
satisfy their security concerns. They are also looking for recruiting
options and will send attendees an email describing potential opportunities.


We are happy to announce a preliminary program. Note that the particular
titles or order of talks may change, but the general schedule should remain
the same.

We are grateful to Ordina for allowing us to host this event on their
premises. They are also kindly providing drinks during the breaks and dinner
afterwards for all participants. You should come and hear from our host how
they make use of functional programming.
