Lambda World Grants
In partnership with our sponsor Ayuntamiento de Cádiz, and in cooperation with Google’s Women Tech Makers and ScalaBridge, we’re providing grants to unrepresented minorities in the functional programming field.
We pride ourselves in offering a fun environment for learning, networking, and celebrating the Functional Programming community. Each grant includes:
- A two-night stay (double or single room) at Hotel Senator Cádiz
(Check-In Oct 26th / Check-Out Oct 28th)
- Full access to all conference sessions
- Entrance to the Closing Party
Please note: transportation is not included in the grants and is the responsibility of the attendee.
If you’re not sure about attending a conference by yourself, you can have a friend join you! Just opt for the double room, and we’ll cover your friend or colleague’s entrance fee to the conference as well!
ScalaBridge was founded in 2016 by Kelley Robinson in an effort to provide an inclusive environment for women looking to learn Scala programming. Since its inception, ScalaBridge workshops have been hosted in locations across the globe.
