Fantasyland Labs is the place where we invest resources for advancing the state of the art
in software engineering. We currently have several open research projects with deliverables that will
benefit the community. Please subscribe to our newsletter to
stay up-to-date on these projects and others.
Standardized Open Ladder of Functional Programming
We have surveyed dozens of practitioners of functional programming in order to
develop a standardized ladder of functional programming, which presents concepts
and skills in a hierarchy.
We hope this ladder will be used by educators and speakers to provide
information on the experience pre-requisites that any functional programming
material might have.
You can download it here.
Talk & Workshop Structure
With hundreds and hundreds of talks and workshops given over many years,
Fantasyland Institute of Learning is acquiring a ton of data on the formats that
are most engaging and effective.
We intend to summarize this learning as a set of recommendations for how
educators and speakers should structure their material to maximize engagement
and long-term retention.
LambdaConf 2017 will be the first edition of FIOL’s
annual conference on functional programming to require standardized structure
across all workshops and presentations.
It is Fantasyland’s intention to organize and fund a number of internships for
software developers looking to improve core infrastructure important to
improving the way the world developers software. We will post more details on
this plan in 2017.
