## About the Haskell devroom

Haskell is a statically typed functional programming language.  Its
vibrant community spans industry, academia and the hobbyist realm.
The Haskell devroom welcomes people new to Haskell or functional
programming, as well as intermediate or experienced Haskellers.

The Haskell devroom will:

- Advocate the Haskell programming language, and its community, to a
  wide audience of free software developers and users.

- Promote and support participation in free software projects that
  use Haskell.

- Teach Haskell (more broadly, functional) programming techniques,
  and introduce important libraries, frameworks or developer tools.

## Call for Participation

We invite proposals for talks, tutorials and demos on topics

- Introductory talks teaching functional programming concepts and
  Haskell programming

- Practical advice for Haskell programming: developer tools, package
  ecosystem, Haskell in production.

- "Show and tell" session for people to introduce Haskell projects
  they are involved with, and invite contributions.

- Experience reports: share about problems you tackled using
  Haskell, and the outcomes.

- What is going on in the Haskell community?  Where and how you can
  get involved?

Sessions will have a maximum duration of 30 minutes, including
questions.  You are welcome to propose shorter sessions (for example
a demo, short talk or Q&A).

This is an in-person event.  Presenters must be able to attend to
deliver their presentation.

## Code of conduct

Speakers and attendees must abide by the FOSDEM Code of Conduct[1].
Also, because this is a Haskell community event we expect
participants to follow the Haskell Foundation Guidelines for
Respectful Communication[2].

questions about the Code of Conduct or wish to have one of the
devroom organizers review your presentation slides or any other
content for compliance, please email us and we will do our best to
assist you.
