Can you teach a school class functional programming?

When discovering SWI Prolog at age 14, an entirely new world was opening up in front of Madeleine.

All of a sudden she could create whatever she wanted, and it was with that experience that she took on the challenge her colleague threw at her one Monday morning: Can you teach a school class functional programming?


In her talk, Madeleine will describe how she introduced programming to a bunch of 9th graders including building a chat application using communication between Erlang nodes.


Anyone interested in coding.
