Welcome to HFPUG!

About us

We are programmers of all levels of ability and experience who are enthusiastic about functional programming and interested in learning more about its languages, techniques, philosophies, and paradigms. From beginning programmers to industry veterans, all are welcome at the Houston Functional Programming User Group.


Whether functional programming is your job, a hobby, or you’re just curious, we hope that you will join us at our next meeting. HFPUG meets on third Wednesdays from 7-9pm. Our meetings are hybrid: we meet in Houston at Improving and via Zoom. (If you arrive at Improving and find the doors locked, please text/call us at 863-732-8773 to be let in.)

Details about our upcoming meetings and how to join us are available on the calendar and via our mailing list. Unless otherwise specified, all events are free of charge and open to all.

Or just go to the calendar, scroll to the bottom and click on the “Subscribe to calendar” button that provides specific options for Google Calendar, iCalendar and Outlook.
