Hi All,


Just a quick reminder about tonight’s talk about functional programming, details below.


All the best,





Jane Street Capital: Real world functional programming

Wednesday 29/02, 20:15, St Catz Lodge First Floor Car Park Facing


“Come and hear about how you can use functional languages to write reliable, large-scale, distributed software. Nearly two million lines of OCaml code and sixty full-time OCaml coders. Functional programming on Linux reigns supreme at Jane Street, a trading firm with offices in London, New York and Hong Kong.”


This should be a very interesting talk, that will begin to explore and demonstrate real world large-scale uses of functional programming. Followed by drinks courtesy of Jane Street.




Jane Street is a quantitative proprietary trading firm who are always looking to recruit (although this is not a recruitment specifc event), so if you are interested in a career with them this would be an excellent opportunity to meet some of their staff. They offer both internships and graduate positions.


Here is a handy map for finding Catz: http://g.co/maps/eeut2

The Arumugan building is the fancy name of the lodge, we will be in the room facing the car park on the first floor. We’ll put up some signs in the lodge (which is that big glass building straight in front of you as you walk into catz) to the room.


The talk starts at 2015.
