  • Functional Programming in Java

    by Nilanjan Raychaudhuri

    Functional programming is in the air. The most common question in java programmers mind is whether it is useful and possible to do functional programming(FP) in Java ? I will start of with a quote from Timothy Budd, “Research results from the psychology of programming indicate that expertise in programming is far more strongly related to the number of different programming styles understood by individual than it is the number of years of experience in programming.” So FP will help you to become a better Java developer. And the good news is FP is language agnostic. Its a style that you learn and can use in almost all programming languages. Outline of the presentation - Introduction to FP with examples written in Java - Why FP is important to learn and explain the benefits of FP in enterprise software development - Overview of the FP libraries available in Java (functionaljava, lambdaj etc)
