(Fun)ctional C++ and the M-word
After a few months break we're back to round out the year with Gašper Ažman - putting the Fun into Functional programming (allegedly). We also have a shorter talk from Antony Peacock on Vocabulary Types for Composite Class Design.
A big thanks to Ripple, who are hosting us again this month and will also be providing free food and drink. Thanks Ripple!

C++ is a multi-paradigm language. Procedural programming and object-oriented programming are very well supported, and as of C++23 there is decent support for generic programming. The functional programming paradigm, however, is only getting love recently.
