GOTO Night - Functional Programming and Static Type Systems

  • 3 days ago · 5:00 PM
  • Trifork A/S

Full Title
The Power of Functional Programming and Static Type Systems in Server-Side Web Applications


Single-page web applications have been spreading like wildfire, with an endless amount of frameworks and libraries, and functional programming together with static types fueling the fire with great ideas like pure functions, monads, and strong type checking. But what happened to Progressive Enhancement? Some parts of our applications might require Javascript to function, but the majority could be built with ordinary links and forms.

In this talk we will explore how we can build web applications using established web technology, and the power of functional programming and PureScript on the server-side, with strong correctness guarantees.



Speaker
Oskar Wickström

Profile
After some years of musical education Oskar Wickström began his journey into the world of software, as a self-taught programmer. He started a company practicing web design and development for small businesses. He now works with CodeScene, a suite of software analysis and repository mining products, along with various open source projects on his free time.
Among the technical topics that interest Oskar are functional programming, systems design, web technology, and programming languages. His more aestetic side, which mostly involves making music, draws him towards graphics and UI design every now and then. He’s a bit of a restless soul, but it also means he gets a lot done.
