YOW! Lambda Jam is a conference for applied functional software developers. The conference provides the opportunity to share experiences so that attendees can improve software development using the principles, practices and tools of functional programming.

Lessons learned and specific practices are very important for this pragmatic conference, hence we encourage submissions which deal with the practical challenges of functional programming such as: developing commercial FP proficiency; leveraging good theory or algorithms to make better practice; pragmatics of applying a specific language or technique in the real world; production challenges such as deployment speed / space; lessons learned taking the wrong road.

The first day is tutorial day which provides a small number full day tutorials on topics for novices, and intermediate to advanced functional programmers.  This was a very and popular feature of our 2018 conference.

We welcome submissions for talks (30 minutes), workshops or code jams (90 minutes) or full-day tutorials. .
