Programming in Functional Style workshop

A session at Sysart Hotspot

Wednesday 2nd November, 2011

2:00pm to 2:00pm (HMT)

Functional programming has been around for a while, however, they have sharply raised to prominence on the JVM with the emergence of languages like Scala, Clojure, Groovy, and JRuby. Programming in functional style is not about picking a set of syntax, it is thinking in a particular idiomatic style and programming using a set of constructs. One of the better way to learn this is by doing it. In this workshop, we will take ten different tasks, discuss how to do them with the all-too-familiar imperative style and then how to program it using functional style. We will then implement our design for each task using a language that provides functional style of programming on the JVM.
