Functional programming is hot these days, but it's not always clear what we mean by "functional" and why we should care. This talk will get acquainted with pure functional effects and show how they can help us solve practical software engineering problems with speaker Dan Harris.

Dan Harris is a Senior Scala Engineer at Ziverge, an OSS contributor, and a 15-year veteran trying to make computers do useful things.
