Join Alejandro Serrano for the tenth Func Prog Sweden MeetUp. This online event takes place on November 8th at 18:00 CET. Erik Dörnenburg from Thoughtworks will also be presenting at this meetup.
Ready for Rust — Erik Dörnenburg
In the StackOverflow developer survey, Rust has been the most loved programming language for five years in a row (2016-2021). Time to see why Mozilla’s creation is so popular. In this talk you’ll encounter many of Rust’s core features on a journey through a real codebase (a genetic programming simulator). As someone who has programmed in a number of languages, Erik will highlight where Rust is different from other languages and what that means in day-to-day development. You’ll also get a glimpse of the growing ecosystem around Rust.
Actions as data — Alejandro Serrano
We often see data and behaviors as two separate worlds. But what happens when your domain requires your modeling behaviors or processes? In this talk, we’ll look at how to use data types with functions in their fields to model a small card game. We’ll start with Kotlin, and, at the end, we’ll see how some of the patterns can be further abstracted in Haskell.
