FP Meetup: OCaml, Facebook and Docker at Jane Street
Functional Works hosted their most recent LDN Functionals meetup #7 at Jane Street London on June 14th, and we spent the evening watching some great talks from people representing Facebook, Docker and Jane Street, and chatting with a full house of functional programmers from all backgrounds.
The event was a sell out (possibly in part due to the amazing view from the London office!) thanks to the excellent talks from Sebastian Funk on "Why Functional Programming Doesn't Matter", Josh Watzman from Facebook's Hack team talking about parallelising the Hack typechecker, and Anil representing Docker by delving into the OCaml insides of Docker for Mac and Windows.
This event allowed users of all functional programming languages to discuss ideas, and the similarities and differences between their chosen language - a great success! We plan to host a future FP Functional Works event in Cambridge later this year.
