There is AngloHaskell and now AmeroHaskell. Doesn't that call for OzHaskell?

Who would be interested to have a Haskell event in Australia, possibly in Sydney? This is just a wild idea without any concrete date or format yet. Jot down any suggestions on this page.

Interested Haskellers:

(Add your name!)

Possible dates


How about the following?

  • One day meeting with informal talks and demos (preferably on a Friday)
  • There could be a second, even less formal day, for those who want to hang out some more and maybe some hacking
  • Run it at the University of New South Wales, Sydney

(Add your thoughts to the above.)

Talks and demos

Do you have anything you'd like to talk about or a system you'd like to demo? This is just a tentative list - you commit to nothing.

Talk proposals
