Summer BOB is a one-time-only event, in the spirit of the spectacular Winter BOB.
Summer BOB 2019 colocates with the International Conference on Functional Programming, the premier gathering of functional programmers, which takes place from August 18 to August 23. Summer BOB will be right in the middle of it, on the last day of ICFP proper, prior to all the workshops.
Summer BOB will feature two tracks: one from practitioners, and one from researchers, and foster communication and cross-pollination between these communities.
Just take a look at some of the announced speakers and what they are going to talk about:
Functional Design Patterns by Franz Thoma
Cleaning the big picture by Christina Zeller
Scala Type Classes by Alexey Novakov
Using Formal Methods to Eliminate Exploitable Bugs by Kathleen Fisher
In Search of Software Perfection by Xavier Leroy
Dependent Types in Haskell by Stephanie Weirich
Summer BOB 2019 will take place in Berlin at the Scandic Hotel Potsdamer Platz, a friendly environmentally conscious place that focusses on sustainability.
