Francis Toth Presents: Functional Programming
Speaker: Francis Toth, YoppWorks Inc.
Introduction to Functional Programming
In this presentation, you will learn the fundamental principles of Functional Programming. We will tackle this paradigm in a very practical way and avoid going into obscure Mathematical theory. We will first cover the very basics (expressions, referential transparency, purity, onion architecture,…) and then move to other concepts such as Functors, Applicatives and Monads. This talk mostly targets beginners but requires a good knowledge of basic programming concepts. All the examples will be in Scala, but knowing the language is not an absolute requirement.
