The Functional Internet of Things

We’re meeting on Monday 15th May at 7pm at MadLab to talk about how Functional Programming can be used to interact with the Internet of Things.

Firstly, Qambar Raza (@QambarRaza) (BBC), who is starting an exciting project using the ESP8266 IC, Clojure, and Firmata and is blogging all the way up to his talk and demo at LambdaLounge.

Our second confirmed speaker, Spencer Marsden (@spencermarsden) (a creative technologist at the BBC’s consumer technology showcase, the Blue Room) will give an overview of some of the exciting projects and technology he’s worked on.

We can still make time for one or two more speakers! could you get involved?

Perhaps you’ve written some dataflow based code on the Raspberry PI with NodeRED? Or you’ve been experimenting with Haskell and hArduino? Or have you been sneaking Functional concepts into C++ code on a PIC?

Whether you are enthusiastically tinkering on a hobby project, or have used these technologies in a successful enterprise, we’d love to hear from you!

We’re really keen to get a diverse range of speakers, from a wide range of backgrounds and experience, whether you’re a relative newcomer to functional programming, a veteran developer, or an academic, we always provide a warm welcome! See our call for speakers for more details or ping us at @lambdamcr!
