3 Registration

If you will be attending, please register. If you like, you can also list yourself as an attendee. Then check out the projects page.

If there is enough interest for some hacking on 29 August, we will look around for some local pubs to work in.

6 Location

See ICFP_2009_Local_Arrangements

7 Preparations

7.1 What to bring

  • A laptop
  • Wireless card if necessary. There will be wireless network access. Ethernet access will probably not be available. If you really need ethernet access, please contact the organizers.
  • Mobile phone

7.2 Before you arrive

  • Pick out a couple of projects to work on and familiarise yourself with them, or bring your own project(s) to work on. See the projects page for a list of projects people plan to work on. If you plan to work on your own project, be sure to list it on the projects page and set up a public repository if you don't already have one, so that other people can help hack on your project.
  • Install an up to date Haskell toolchain: at least ghc (preferably 6.10.*) and cabal-install. If you don't already have these installed (or need to install from scratch on the laptop you're bringing), the easiest way is probably to install the Haskell Platform.

8 Contact

Eric Kow or Dougal Stanton
