Two years ago while hiking at Chautauqua Park at the end of LambdaConf, I first met Harold Carr. A fellow Lisper and a Jazz bass player, Harold is precise and relaxed. His main focus is a blockchain project that he works on at Oracle Labs.

Meet Our Team

LambdaConf is a brand of Fantasyland Institute of Learning, dedicated to the promotion of functional programming.

LambdaConf organizes an annual conference in Boulder, Colorado, which is one of the largest and most respected conferences on functional programming in the world. LambdaConf also hosts workshops, seminars, meetups, and retreats around the world, helping people everywhere find better ways of writing software through the magic of functional programming.

Functional programming is a radically different, more principled way to develop software that is easier to reason about, easier to compose, easier to test, and easier to change safely. Functional programming has novel approaches to software quality, security, concurrency, distribution, and agility, and functional techniques have been popularized in React, Akka, Spark, Promises, and other libraries.

LambdaConf is committed to globally spreading awareness of functional programming in industry, and making quality education accessible and affordable to everyone who has a passion for finding better ways to write software.
