Commercial Users of Functional Programming (CUFP) 2014 at ICFP 2014; 
Gothenburg, Sweden, Sep 4-6.



Functional programming has been at the forefront of a new generation 
of programming technologies: Companies employing functional 
programming use it to enable more effective, robust, and flexible 
software development. 

The annual CUFP workshop is designed to serve the growing community of 
commercial users of functional programming: Practitioners meet and 
collaborate; language designers and users can share ideas about the 
future of their languages; experts share their expertise on practical 
functional programming. 

CUFP 2014 begins with two days of tutorials by top-notch 
language experts including advanced tutorials on special topics,
followed by a day of talks about industrial applications of 
functional programming.

More information about CUFP 2014 is available on the CUFP web site at
