The BAA (British APL Association) was founded 40 years ago to promote a the APL family of interactive array-programming languages derived from Ken Iverson’s Iverson notation.

As a group, it organises regular events around the UK and encourages participation from as many people as possible. The BAA London group meets once per month (in London) and all are welcome to come along and join in.

Activities

Symposium

Most months, BAA London arranges a meet-up at the The Hoop and Grapes pub on Farringdon Street in London. No sign-up is required.

Vector Journal

At irregular intervals, BAA publishes a journal with submitted articles on array programming.

BAPLA 09

The British APL Association held a 2-day conference, BAPLA 09, on June 8th & 9th 2009 at DeVere Hotel, Wokefield Park, near Reading, UK

Organisation

The BAA is administered by a committee of officers elected by ballot of Association members at the Annual General Meeting. Working groups are also established in areas such as activity planning and journal production. Offers of assistance and involvement with any Association matters are always welcomed.

Funding for the BAA comes entirely from the sustaining members. In many cases, these sustaining members also provide manpower and administrative assistance to the association at their own cost.

The current chairman is Paul Grosvenor.
