  • Review Frege Day 2015

    September 18th, 2015

    On a sunny day in September 2015 a group of functional programming enthusiasts assembled in Basel, Switzerland, for the first Frege Day.

    Frege is a Haskell for the JVM and brings the purely functional programming paradigm to the Java platform.

    It was so nice to finally meet in person all those who we otherwise only know from mail, twitter, and other internet channels. There is nothing like the energy that comes from dedicated people coming together.

    But the gathering was not limited to only the Canoo office Basel. It also virtually included Frege friends in New Zealand, Australia, and the US, which extended their usual working hours to very late in the evening or very early hours in the morning. This made it a truly international conference!

    It was a special honor to also have the Haskell legend Simon Peyton Jones joining via video. He encouraged us to further pursue our path of becoming “the” Haskell for the JVM. You can read the transcript here: https://github.com/Frege/frege/wiki/Simon-Peyton-Jones-transcript,-Frege-Day-2015

    This has become the major topic of the day: how to evolve the language, the libraries, the tools, and the surrounding material to make pure functional programming on the JVM a fruitful and enjoyable experience. You can read more about the details here: https://github.com/Frege/frege/wiki/Protocol-for-Frege-Day-2015

    The day was a major boost for the emerging community and there is lots of potential for even higher popularity.

    Stay tuned for Frege Day 2016!

    Canoo at W-JAX 2012

    October 29th, 2012

    W-JAX 2012 will be opening its doors next week to this annual event. Canoo has in store the two key topics, JavaFX and user experience, for its conference visitors. JavaFX, as the official successor to Swing, is the focus of the JavaFX power workshops. Meanwhile, user experience is creating a sensation at the eponymous Special Day. And on no account should you miss our new open source project Dolphin, which will also be presented at W-JAX on Tuesday evening following its première at JavaOne Keynote in October.

    In a total of five sessions, a power workshop and a keynote you can experience Dierk König and Gerrit Grunwald live. Furthermore, the Canoo expo stand will be providing an additional focal point at which our software experts will be glad to answer your questions on the programme topics W-JAX and technology trends. We are looking forward to your visit! Click here for an overview of all W-JAX talks.
