Immutability, FPP and why they are our friends

Managing complexity in software is a challenge we all face, one that software frameworks principles/practices/approaches such as SOLID and DDD all aim to address. Functional programming languages such as Kotlin, Scala and Haskell have gained a lot of traction over the past few years because of the benefits brought to complexity management by functional programming principles - particularly the application of immutability to control possible states.

This talk demonstrates the value of FPP and immutability in commercial software engineering - individually, and in conjunction with other modern practices - in terms of code simplicity, error reduction, performance, readability/maintainability and engineering discipline, and addressing the implementation complexities that inherently arise.
