Come join Jerrod Long for a Functional Programming discussion and a primer on the UnderscoreJS JavaScript library.  We’ll discuss what makes JavaScript a functional language and the benefits of such. Then we’ll dive into real world examples from bootstrapping your application to some advanced uses of the UnderscoreJS library.

    Topic was great, though it might have been nice to be a little more interactive, maybe a chance to pair up and play at the end.

    Even for someone who is just taking baby steps into front-end development, the presentation was accessible and clear and provided examples that helped make highlight the possibilities of functional programming and UnderscoreJS. Easy to ask questions, good back and forth, with attendees providing some great info as well as the presenter.

    Great talk, thanks for always starting on time and not having a lot of non-educational fluff.

    I've been using Underscore for a while, but I still managed to learn quite a bit from this presentation.
