Join Kathleen Dollard and Kevlin Henney for a dive into using Functional Principles in traditionally imperative and Object Oriented languages like C#. We'll look at specific techniques and have lots of times for discussion.
Kathleen loves to code and loves to teach and talk about code. She’s written tons of articles, a book, and spoken at numerous conferences around the world. She’s on the .NET Team at Microsoft, where she works on the .NET Core CLI and SDK. If you’re not sure what all those acronyms mean… just ask her. She’s always ready to help developers take the next step in exploring the wonderful world we call code!
Kevlin Henney is an independent consultant, speaker, writer and trainer. His development interests are in patterns, programming, practice and process. He has been a columnist for a number of magazines and sites, has contributed to both open- and closed-source software (sometimes unintentionally), and has been on far too many committees (it has been said that "a committee is a cul-de-sac down which ideas are lured and then quietly strangled"). He is coauthor of A Pattern Language for Distributed Computing (https://www.amazon.com/Pattern-Oriented-Software-Architecture-Distributed-Computing/dp/0470059028) and On Patterns and Pattern Languages (https://www.amazon.com/Pattern-Oriented-Software-Architecture-Languages/dp/0471486485), two volumes in the Pattern-Oriented Software Architecture series. He is also editor of 97 Things Every Programmer Should Know (https://www.amazon.com/Things-Every-Programmer-Should-Know/dp/0596809484).
