About us

The λ lounge meets monthly to talk about and popularise new ways of thinking about computation.  Frequent topics include, functional programming, type systems, programming language design and aspects of computer science.

We are programming language agnostic, but have traditionally focused on exploring functional programming, though we are open to hosting more diverse talks on computer science topics.

We were born from the Manchester Clojure Dojo, when we decided there would be more demand for a broader group focusing on functional programming in general.  We asked politely and took the name from the American revolutionaries, of the orignal Lambda Lounge in St Louis.  Our logo was designed by the incredibly talented @hltn.
