Vlad Patryshev, "Applicative Programming

This talk targets mostly programmers that are not afraid of functors; the "applicative functors" discussed in the talk are plain closed functors from closed monoidal categories.

The language in which the stuff is modeled is mostly Scala, non-idiomatic (I hope).

The content is this:

  • refactoring to Monads
  • from Monads to Applicative Functors
  • traverse/map/reduce

I do not think I can cover all this in one session; probably two.

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
