Workshop Description

Both workshops are intended for anyone who identifies as belonging to a group that is underrepresented in tech. Attendance of the workshops is free, with food and drinks provided throughout the day.

In the intro workshop, we'll take you through the basics of functional programming in Scala, a powerful language that has uses in everything from web applications to data science to large-scale distributed systems. The applied functional workshop focusses on purely functional paradigms, and how they can be encoded in Scala. By the end of the day, you'll have built some fun projects and have a basic understanding of
functional programming.

To attend the events, you should have some familiarity with another programming language (like Ruby, Python, Java, or Javascript) - but no formal training is required. Students will be separated into different classes based on the experience level they choose when signing up. If you are completely new to
programming, you're welcome to join and check us out.
