Functional Programming is becoming increasingly popular and relevant with each year that goes by. With so much discussion around languages such as F#, Haskell and Erlang, it can seem as though getting started with Functional programming would mean first learning a whole new syntax... but what if it didn't?
This talk will demonstrate how, using ES6 and a few extra libraries, we can write Functional code that is:
- More robust
- Easier to read
- Easier to maintain
This talk might be of interest to anyone looking into moving to a new platform, or in improving the scalability of an existing application, or even just interested in seeing what Functional Programming is all about, but all within the comfort of a familiar language.
We might even attempt the impossible, and explain what a Monad is!

Doors open from about 6:30, with time for refreshments and networking before the talk starts around 7:30. Don't worry if you're unable arrive before 7:30, we'd rather you turn up late, than not at all.
