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