Functional Programming

Functional Programming India

We are a community and a meetup group for Functional Programming language enthusiasts in India. You can join and participate in the online events even if you are somewhere else. We organise regular meetups, events, webinars, and workshops, all centered around Functional Programming and related technologies. All skill levels from novices to gods of category theory are welcome.

Past Events

TechTriveni

TechTriveni 2.0

In 2019, FPIndia was a community partner with Tech Triveni 2.0. Tech Triveni is Asia's first Functional & Reactive programming and big data conference. It's a unique experience for developers, data scientists, decision-makers and enthusiasts & experts from IT to collaborate on the latest architectures for building and running reactive, big data and functional systems that are scalable, high on performance using the reactive stack. Attendees to TechTriveni 2019 learnt about the latest advances in reactive and functional programming, microservices, streaming data, big data as well as real-world enterprise best practices.

Further ways to connect

The primary gathering place is this community website However, we also have our members on these other platforms. The GetTogether community page is currently the primary place to join if you want to attend meetups. Please note that signups on that page do not require any personally identifying information. We also have a Meetup Page, however we are in the process of moving away from Meetup, and the GetTogether page is preferred. We are active in our Telegram Group. Please join that group for informal discussions. It's a welcoming space for folks new to Functional Programming. Finally you can always mail us at team@functionalprogramming.in for any help or questions.

Functional Programming Jobs in India

Functional Programming principles and practices are seeing a renaissance in the Software Industry, and that is also true of the Indian software industry. There are a lot of functional programming enthusiasts and a lot of new jobs that prefer people with FP experience. However there is a need for a concerted effort to connect the two together. This site is intended to serve that purpose by providing an India and FP focused job board.

 

We clearly divide our job posts into the level of FP experience that's desired. This does NOT reflect the seniority level of the job itself. Often companies look for people in senior roles, whop may not yet have significant experience with Functional Programming, but have some demonstrable interest in it. This could mean writing blog posts, having small FP projects on Github, participating in FP communities (like this one!) and attending FP meetups. We especially welcome jobs that involve working with Simple Haskell or other such simple FP in other languages.

 

If you would like to post a job here, please email jobboard@functionalprogramming.in with the details. Job postings are completely free, but require that the jobs involve actual functional programming (in any language or platform). You can also mail us if you are looking for a job and would like to be updated when we have jobs that suit your profile.
