What is ZuriHac?
ZuriHac is the biggest Haskell community event in the world: a completely free, three-day grassroots coding festival co-organized by the Zürich Friends of Haskell and the OST Eastern Switzerland University of Applied Science. It is not your standard conference with papers and presentations, but features fantastic keynotes, hands-on tracks, hacking on many of your favourite projects, and of course lots of socializing!
ZuriHac takes place Saturday 8 June — Monday 10 June 2024 as a physical event at the beautiful Rapperswil-Jona campus of OST located right next to lake Zürich. We hope to see you there!
Alex is a Research Fellow at non-profit studio Then Try This, and co-founder of the Algorave and TOPLAP live coding communities. He is the author of the TidalCycles live coding environment for music, implemented as a Haskell EDSL.
Ivan is the founder of Keera, a game studio using Haskell. He is known for his work around Functional Reactive Programming, and more recently, he has been working as a Senior Research Scientist at NASA Ames Research Center.
Mary is a professor at the Chalmers University of Technology. In her research, she applies ideas from functional programming to hardware design and high-performance computing.
ZuriHac is primarily a community event and a hackathon, rather than a conference. Aside from the talks and tracks, attendees are encouraged to work together on all sorts of Haskell-related open-source projects and socialize. Trying to attend everything may a bit too much, just pick what you find interesting!
This schedule is tentative and minor changes may still need to happen as we get closer to the event.
