Welcome to the TFPIE wiki. The TFPIE wiki is a portal to find and contribute material on the subject of Functional Programming in an educational setting. It has been created on the occasion of the first International Workshop on Trends in Functional Programming In Education that was held at the University of St. Andrews, Scotland, on june 11th 2012.

TFPIE wiki

During the first TFPIE workshop, a group of enthusiastic functional programmers expressed their willingness to contribute further to this wiki. We are currently exploring how to structure this wiki, its policies, and initial content. A brainstorm lunch-meeting was held during the subsequent Trends in Functional Programming Symposium. We invite you to contribute to this wiki as well.

TFPIE workshops

We plan to organize the TFPIE workshops annually. These workshops are an informal meeting intended for researchers, professors, teachers, and all professionals that use or are interested in the use of functional programming in education. TFPIE aims to be a venue where novel ideas, classroom-tested ideas, and work in progress on the use of functional programming in education are discussed. The one-day workshops will foster a spirit of open discussion by having a review process for publication after the workshop.
