On Thursday the 29th of August 2013 the Zurich HaskellerZ Meetup group will hold the "Zurich Haskell Day". This will be a half-day event consisting of talks themed "Haskell in Industry". It will be held at ETH and will start with a keynote from Simon Marlow!

The Zurich Haskell Day is followed by ZuriHac 2013, a three day Hackathon from Friday the 30th of August until Sunday the 1st of June hosted at the Erudify office.

The Haskell Hackathon is an international, grassroots collaborative coding festival with a simple focus: build and improve Haskell libraries, tools, and infrastructure.

This is a great opportunity to meet your fellow haskellers in real life, find new contributors for your project, improve existing libraries and tools or even start new ones!



Erudify will host the Hackathon.
