ICFP programming contest

It’s announced in comp.lang.functional.

The Fifth Annual

     ICFP PROGRAMMING CONTEST

  August 30 - September 2, 2002

There’s a comment on dynamic languages - perhaps that’s a hint for Ruby?

The Dylan team was second last year, and we won official bragging
rights.[0] The winner used Haskell, so we were the top scoring users of
a dynamic programming language.

Results of last year are here:

Our report is here:

It was really a lot of fun to participate, and we hope to see
challenging opponents this year.

I just requested that they add Ruby, just in case it may provide a good
implementation.

Portland Ruby User Group meeting.
