"Functional Programming on the JVM" by Robert Avram

Robert has been working as a Clojure developer for over two years at REWE digital. In this talk he will guide us through the spectrum of languages on the JVM (Java Virtual Machine) and how well they support functional programming.

He will discuss Java, Kotlin, Scala, Clojure, and end on Eta and Frege.

Combined with concrete examples from practical use this talk will leave you with a better understanding of the functional landscape on the JVM.


"Putting your Types to Work" by Christoph Hegemann

Christoph is quite the functional programming enthusiast. He worked on PureScript which is a strongly-typed functional programming language that compiles to JavaScript.

In this talk he is going to teach us how we can use types to let the compiler help you avoid writing bugs.
