Workshop: Functional JavaScript with Underscore

  • Aug 5, 2014 · 6:30 PM

Let's talk about what it looks like to program in a functional style using underscore in JavaScript. Underscore provides a collection of useful methods for working with data in a functional style. We will look at why this can be better than doing things in an imperative style.

This will be a workshop, so bring your laptop! We will work through several problems and see what it looks like to solve them functionally.

Dinner will be provided.

    Great presentation, are the slides available somewhere? I wanted to send this out to some colleagues and thought the slides would be beneficial. Thanks again.

    Thanks for the great exercises!
    Did anyone go home with an extra Apple power adapter? I seem to have parted ways with the one I came with.

    I wouldn't worry about downloading it ahead of time, unless you really want to - it's only 5kb minified.

    Anything we could do to prepare, like downloading underscore, etc.?
