This Meetup is past

36 people went


What happens when you take a procedural program riddled with partial functions and effects, and incrementally refactor it to a purely functional program—and then dial it up to eleven? In this live coding session, John hopes you'll be amused and a maybe little terrified as he shows you where pure FP leads on one of the simplest programs possible, pointing out both the benefits and the costs of pure functional programming, and giving you an appreciation for how functional programming techniques scale to and deliver the most benefit in very large teams and very large applications.
