• Achieving functional programming in Java

    RokkinCat Office

    This month we have a special guest speaker that will be doing a deep dive into a single topic. John Napier is going to come up from Chicago to talk about Lambda, a library of functional programming patterns in Java. https://palatable.github.io/lambda/ A little more info about our speaker: John currently works with developers on software fundamentals for an algorithmic trading firm based in Chicago and spends entirely too much time engulfed in problem domains he knows nothing about and has no earthly business trying to learn. Prior to his work in the financial domain, he built systems for financial trading, global supply chain management automation and fulfillment, network behavioral anomaly detection, real-time auctioning, ad-tech, ed-tech, fractional trading, and algorithmic cloud security. In April, we'll switch back to our lightning talk format, so save up your ideas and we'll look forward to hearing them. RokkinCat is graciously providing pizza again this month!

    Sticking with our short talk/demo format, we will once again have 3 - 5 slots available for you to show what you're working on, share something you learned, or demo some cool code. The presentation should aim to be 5 - 15 minutes, with a hard time limit of 20 minutes. Please post a comment with a brief description of what you'd like to present. Anything FP-related is fair game! I'd really like to encourage as many members as possible to participate. Even if you're just learning something, you can still present. It will help you learn it more deeply by sharing and explaining. RokkinCat is graciously providing pizza again this month!
