Functional Programming in Industry
- September 13, 2017
Join us on September 13th for Functional Programming in Industry at the Department of Computer Science at KU Leuven.
The workshop marks the culmination of the vLambda Project and starts with two crash courses on Functional Programming in C# or Java. The afternoon is a free workshop featuring testimony from various industrial vLambda partners of their functional programming endevours. The event caps off with a keynote from 47 Degrees’ own Noel Markham.
Being Purely Functional in an Impure World
When doing functional programming in languages that are traditionally non-functional, you can step outside the boundaries of what is considered ‘good’ or ‘correct’—from both a technical and social perspective—for seemingly little or no extra cost.
Through this talk, we’ll take a look at some scenarios where it’s possible to cut corners, see what benefits and drawbacks there are, and show why having a mindset for functional programming can help you excel.
