Pipeline-oriented programming with Scott Wlaschin

Online event

Passing data through a pipeline of transformations is an alternative approach to classic OOP. The LINQ methods in .NET are designed around this, but the pipeline approach can be used for so much more than manipulating collections.

In this talk, I'll look at pipeline-oriented programming and how it relates to functional programming, the open-closed principle, unit testing, the onion architecture, and more. I'll finish up by showing how you can build a complete web app using only this approach.

Scott Wlaschin is a developer, architect and author. He is the author of the popular F# site fsharpforfunandprofit.com, and the book "Domain Modeling Made Functional", published by Pragmatic Bookshelf.

Known for his non-academic approach to functional programming, Scott is a popular speaker and has given talks at NDC, F# Exchange, DDD Europe, and other conferences around the world.
