Trends in Functional Programming In Education
Kraków, Poland (online), 16th February 2021/16th March 2022
This volume combines proceedings from the 2021 and 2022 International Workshops on Trends in Functional Programming in Education (TFPIE).
The Tenth International Workshop on Trends in Functional Programming in Education, TFPIE 2021, was held as part of LambdaDays 2021, organized in Kraków, Poland on February 16 2021.
Because of the covid pandemic, TFPIE 2021 and LambdaDays were done completely online.
The Eleventh International Workshop on Trends in Functional Programming in Education, TFPIE 2022, was organized as part of LambdaDays 2022, and held online on March 16 2022.
The goal of TFPIE is to gather researchers, professors, teachers, and all professionals interested in functional programming in education.
This includes the teaching of functional programming, but also the application of functional programming as a tool for teaching other topics, e.g. computational concepts, complexity, logic and reasoning, and even disciplines, e.g. philosophy or music.
TFPIE is the heir of previous events, like Functional and Declarative Programming in Education (FDPE), to which it owes a great deal and from which it has borrowed experience and ideas.
The 2021 edition is the 10th anniversary.
Previous workshops were held at the University of St. Andrews - Scotland, Brigham Young University - USA, Utrecht University - Netherlands, Sophia Antipolis - France, University of Maryland College Park - USA, University of Kent - England, Chalmers University - Sweden, University of British Columbia - Canada, and preceding LambdaDays in Kraków - Poland.
Programme and keynotes
The 2021 programme consisted of two keynotes and three sessions of regular technical presentations.
The opening keynote was by Francesco Cesarini and Simon Thompson who talked about their extensive experience in teaching functional programming in industry versus academia.
The sessions speakers were Junya Nose, Dmitry Boulytchev, Jørgen Villadsen, Olivier Melançon, Marco T. Morazán, and Victor Winter.
The closing keynote was by Bartosz Milewski who took us on an expedition in the simulation world of Factorio to discover functional programming patterns.
The 2022 programme featured a keynote by Peter Achten describing his vision for a perfect functional programming course.
The technical session presented talks by Lidia Gorodnyaya, Dmitry Kondratyev, Matthew Farrugia-Roberts, Harald Søndergaard, Youyou Cong, Frederik Krogsdal Jacobsen, Jørgen Villadsen,
Kevin Kappelmann, Jonas Rädle, Lukas Stevens, Marco T. Morazán, Padma Pasupathi, Christopher Schankula, Nicole DiVincenzo, Sarah Coker, Christopher Anand,
Chinmay Sheth, Vaitheeka Nallasamy, and Kruthiga Karunakaran.
TFPIE 2021 received six submissions that received feedback from the program committee before the workshop.
The post-workshop review process received five submissions, which were reviewed by the program committee, assuming scientific journal standards of publication.
The first three articles in this volume were selected for publication as the result of this process.
TFPIE 2022 received nine submissions for presentation at the workshop.
The post-workshop review process received seven submissions, which were reviewed by the program committee, assuming scientific journal standards of publication.
The subsequent five articles in this volume were selected for publication as the result of this process.

TFPIE 2021 and 2022 would not have been possible without the great support of the LambdaDays team.
Finally, we would like to thank the members of the programme committee
who worked very hard with the authors of the papers presented here to help to give their work the best possible presentation.
We hope that you enjoy reading the results!
