This is next week (Tues 31st) if anyone's interested in our
"Functional Programming Extravaganza".

(I'll mention Perl in my slides, but only in passing.  But never fear!
 The Haskell talk at least is quite "real world" and doesn't have too
much scary code, rather some "motivating examples" for functional
style modelling of a problem)
