Functional Programming on the JVM

A session at Vermont Code Camp

Saturday 10th September, 2011

Functional programming appears to be gaining in popularity. This session will give a brief explanation of what functional programming is and introduce three functional languages built on top of the Java Virtual Machine: Groovy, Scala, and Clojure. The session will cover language fundamentals, a short history of each language, and a comparison of how a problem can be solved in java and each of the functional languages.
