Scala at the Sea August Meetup
Join us for the August meeting of Scala at the Sea in Seattle!
On August 8th, 2017, Andy Scott will be presenting a Practical Guide to Functional Programming:
Functors? Monads? Kleisli arrows? Comonads? Morphism? Referential transparency?? The functional programming community loves to talk about concepts from a mathematical perspective. And learning these concepts on your own is a daunting task because the concepts are often defined in terms of each other. Let’s take a pragmatic tour of some key concepts and avoid as much jargon as we can. Our goal is to understand what things do, when we might see them come up, and when we might want to use them ourselves. This talk will include pretty pictures, sound effects, and some simple code samples.
Doors open at 6:00 PM with the talk beginning at 6:30 PM. Come early for networking, food, and drinks!
The 47 Degrees headquarters will also be holding open office hours prior to the meetup. Stop by our Pioneer Square digs, grab a coffee or beer and chat about Scala, open source, and related technologies…or whatever you feel like talking about from 1:00 - 5:00 PM.
Location for this event is TBD, stay tuned for updates closer to the event.
