Functional Programming for mere mortals

Session Abstract

Functional programming combines the expressiveness and power of abstract mathematics with the intuitive clarity of abstract mathematics. If you start reading about it it's full of words like category theory, monad, functor, combinator, lambda calculus, currying and expressions like Y=λf.(λx.f(xx))(λx.f(xx)). Also, most of the people you meet talking about it are like they are in some kind of a cult, uniform and trying to convert you to the one true way. And you just want to write better code - not a doctoral thesis! This talk is not like that. This talk focuses on how you can use functional programming techniques as additional tools in your toolbelt - tools that you can use when and if they are needed, where they are needed. Tools that you use in addition to, not instead of everything you've learned until now. Tools and techniques that will enable you to, sometimes, make your code more reliable, more predictable, more readable, and more maintainable, May Contain Jargon. No Math Required.
