🖥 Kyle Newsome - Intro to Functional Programming in Swift
Whether you are seasoned or new to programming, functional programming can help us write better code. Object-oriented programming will always have a place in our day-to-day lives but we can supplement those with functional programming techniques that make it easier to reason about our code. In this talk, we will discuss the fundamentals of functional programming and ways to apply these techniques to improve testability and our abilities to reason about code. While most principles of this talk are universal to programming, the code samples will be focused on Swift in the context of iOS development.

🖥 Tim Mitra - 5 Ways to become a better developer. Tim is giving a preview of his SwiftTO talk!

🍻After the talks we will retire to the Red Room on Spadina (444 Spadina Ave) All are welcome to join us to have a Coke, a beer, or a coffee and chat about the talks tonight and all the new developments we've seen the last two months.
