We are all computer science nerdz, right?
For sure you know what are research papers. I am sure that you have read a couple of those related to computer science. If you are carefully watching that community, you are aware of the idea called PapersWeLove.
If not - don’t worry, I will explain: it is a repository of academic computer science papers and a community who loves reading them.
We would like to do exactly the same thing as a part of Functional Miners community. We would like to once in 2 months meet together for a talk about one particular research paper and facilitate discussion about that topic. It is a great idea to get familiar with something new, and maybe even change your career direction. Those meetings will be interleaved with Functional Miners events.
Why we have not created a new chapter/user group? Because our Silesian community is already too fragmented, and spawning another group will not help. But we are open to any participants - no matter the programming language or paradigm you like. In the end, we are all computer scientists, right?
