Talk of functional programming is often very theoretical- join us for events that focus more on real world uses of languages like Elm, Clojure, Livescript and Haskell. We aim to build a community where we can share real world examples and learn from each other- and have some fun at the same time.
Functional Programming Concepts by Tom Duncalf An introduction to some fundamental but often hard to understand functional programming concepts, inspired by the e-book "Professor Frisby's Mostly Adequate Guide To Functional Programming". The talk will cover the basics of concepts such as currying, composition, functors and monads, and hopefully show that they aren't as scary as they are often made out to be, and that they can be useful, whatever language we work in day-to-day.
Various Ways of Using Haskell by Ben Ford ( at 56 minutes) Ben will talk about the various ways of using Haskell (or Haskell like languages) in the browser and the front end architecture that drops out of making that choice. In particular he'll dig into how purely functional front end architectures mimic how we process the world and are therefore easier to understand.
