Hello Friends of Haskell,

We are happy to announce that registration for ZuriHac 2019 is now open.
Participation is free but limited to 450 attendees.  You can register


This year, we've taken dogfooding a step further and rolled our own open
source registration system in Haskell, so please let me know if you
experience any issues.

ZuriHac 2019 will take place from Friday the 14th to Sunday the 16th of
June 2019.  It will be hosted at the Hochschule Rapperswil on the shores
of beautiful Lake Zurich.  This will mark the 8th anniversary of ZuriHac
since our beginnings in 2010.

The Zurich Haskell Hackathon is a free, international, grassroots, and
collaborative coding festival.  Our goal is to connect Haskellers,
expand the community, learn things from each other, and to work on
Haskell libraries, tools, and infrastructure.

This year, we will enjoy keynotes from:

- Simon Peyton Jones
- Susan Potter
- Richard Eisenberg
- Ryan Trinkle

More keynote speakers will be announced.

The event is open to any experience level, from beginners to gurus.  We
want to make a special effort to ensure that the event is welcoming and
accessible to people completely new to Haskell.  That is why we are
super excited that, Julie Moronuki, co-author of Haskell Programming
from first principles [1] and Joy of Haskell [2], has kindly agreed to
teach a beginners course in one of the classrooms we have available.
Additionally, there will be mentors that you can approach during the
whole event with any Haskell-related questions.

This is a great opportunity to meet your fellow Haskellers in real life,
find new contributors for your project, improve existing libraries and
tools or even start new ones!

You can find all of this information and more on our website:


We would also like to thank our sponsors Digital Asset [3], DFINITY [4]
and HSR [5] for their strong commitment to the Haskell community and for
supporting this great event!

Looking forward to seeing you there,
The Zurich Friends of Haskell association.
