  • assert (isBack vanFP)
    We are planning our last Meetup for the year! SCHEDULE 6:30 pm: Mingle & set up 6:45 pm: Ruaidhri Rure - Adopting a Functional Mindset for business Insights from a small software team working to integrate web applications into a scientific research platform. We will discuss some of the challenges encountered and explain how adopting a functional mindset has made certain problems easier to manage. The team uses Python/Cython and a handful of specialized libraries for scientific code. Making those applications available via a web browser required a lot of new infrastructures. Different libraries and languages were evaluated for suitability. This talk will focus on the choice of Elixir (OTP) for task management and Elm for client development; and some of the alternatives that were ruled out along the way. 7:30 pm: Pending
