Compose is a conference for typed functional programmers, focused specifically on Haskell, OCaml, F#, SML, & related technologies.
Typed functional programming has been taken up widely, by industry & hobbyists alike. For many of us it has renewed our belief that code should be beautiful, & that programming can be as enjoyable as it is practical. Compose is about bringing together functional programmers of all levels of skill & experience - from technical leads to novices, & from long-time hackers to students just getting started.
Our experiences have shown that the theoretical can be put into practice with great success, & that topics once considered advanced can be made understandable & spread widely. For example, type systems, often considered complex, can simplify our lives by teaching compilers to do some of our reasoning for us.
Compose is about learning together - sharing knowledge, insights, techniques, & sometimes just awesome things we made.
