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

The Zurich FP Afternoon is followed by ZuriHac 2013, a three day Haskell Hackathon from Friday, 30 August until Sunday, 1 September hosted at the Erudify offices.

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!

Getting around

Google map with important places

Local transport links:



We have spoken with the local Youth Hostel in Zurich and they will be able to group Haskellers together if you mention the code "ZuriHac2013" when booking and when you check in.

The website to book is here http://www.youthhostel.ch/en/hostels/zurich

Please be advised we do not have a hold on rooms so you should book sooner rather than later if you will attend! Erudify and the Youth Hostel can't guarantee space

The Hostel has good public transport links to the Hackathon and downtown Zurich.

More transport information to follow.

Other options we recommend would be Airbnb.


The Zurich FP Afternoon will start at 13:30 and end at 17:30. The day will start with a keynote from Simon Marlow. This page will soon contain the full program of the day. Afterwards we will go to dinner.

The official hacking hours for ZuriHac are 10:00 to 20:00 on Friday, 09:00 to 20:00 on Saturday and Sunday.

Please come before 11:00 on Friday. At 11:00 there will be projects introduction and discussion.

If the weather is good during ZuriHac we will stop a little earlier to go to Lake Zurich to have a BBQ. Make sure to pack your swimming suit!


We will soon provide a list of attendees.
