The Dutch Haskell User Group meet monthly in an informal setting. The group was born on 19 April 2009 at Hac5. Since the Haskell programmers in the Netherlands are multilingual, the language used is usually English.
Anyone is welcome to join, from beginners to advanced users.
Do join us!
A mailing list dutch-hug is available at Google Groups. On the list, we discuss dates and times for new meetings and other Dutch HUG related affairs.
