Description

Escape the hustle of everyday coding with LambdaConf’s second Winter Retreat, held this year in Whistler, British Columbia, Canada—a beautiful mountain town nestled in the southern Pacific Ranges of the Coast Mountains!

Leisurely explore selected topics in functional programming from invited LambdaConf Guides. Pair with attendees on interesting projects. Apply what you have learned from conferences, books, and blogs. And start 2018 with fresh passion for writing software in ways better than you ever thought possible.

  • Takes place in Whistler, a beautiful mountain town. Whistler's pedestrian village has won many design awards and the town has been voted among the top destinations in North America by major ski magazines since the mid-1990s. There are numerous shops, restaurants, and cafes, and opportunities for downhill skiing, cross-country skiing, snowboarding, sledding, snowshoeing, and much more. Experience Whistler's legendary beauty and charm for yourself!
  • Easy, cheap flights and open borders. Vancouver is a direct and affordable plane flight away from most major cities in the USA and Canada and has many non-stop international routes. Canada is well-known for relatively open borders, low hassle with customs, and no travel bans, making it a perfect vacation destination.
  • Original content from hand-invited Guides. These LambdaConf Guides have been selected based on their expert teaching skills, mastery of key topics in functional programming, and popularity with attendees. You'll find helpful and very knowledgeable Guides with backgrounds in Haskell, Scala, Elm, PureScript, mathematics, and more.
  • Dedicated mentoring time with Guides. Every Guide dedicates 2 hours of Office Hours to help attendees, whether that's by teaching concepts, pairing with them on challenging code, or practicing with them to enhance key skills essential for mastery of functional programming.
  • Plenty of time for collaboration and peer-learning. Scheduled content consumes only four hours each day, allowing plenty of time for learning from Guides and fellow attendees, collaborating on interesting projects, and sharing your own knowledge with fellow attendees.
  • Includes 3 days with breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Self-pay for lodging and activities, but 9 full meals are included, which keeps costs low and provides ample opportunity for networking. If you stay at the official retreat hotel, which gets you phenomenal rates, you get to stay with most other attendees and Guides!
  • Two reserved conference rooms and several lounges. Wifi is included and projectors can be used by attendees outside hours of scheduled content. Bring some fun problems or side projects and expect to make some serious progress with help from some of the most experienced engineers working in functional programming.
  • Legendary LambdaConf swag. Expect the "cold weather" edition of LambdaConf swag, which will help you keep warn during your trip to Whistler. Hot chocolate, bookmarks, and premium zippable jackets are all included!
  • Childcare available. Don't let little ones deter you from leveling up. You'll have the option of signing up for childcare for any of the days of the retreat, either half day or full day. There are also plenty of outdoor activities and classes available for older kids (5+) and teens, including sledding, skiing, snow-boarding, and more.

Unlike Winter Retreat 2017, your Winter Retreat 2018 ticket does not including lodging. Please purchase accommodations separately. We recommend the official conference hotel (a very short walk away from the conference center), for which we have secured an excellent rate.

Note: Due to the nature of this small, intimate event, attendance is strictly capped, so if you want to attend, purchase a ticket at the earliest opportunity. As with all LambdaConf events, there are no refunds or exchanges.
