Functional Programming: Technical Reasons to Adapt

A session at NDC Community Tuesday

Tuesday 16th June, 2015

5:30pm to 7:30pm (CET)

Functional programming is receiving much attention recently. Most mainstream languages, including C++, Java, and C# now support lambda expressions and functional style. Why is there a sudden interest in adapting something that was largely ignored for decades? What are the technical reasons, how do we benefit, in what ways can using these techniques make our applications better and our development efforts easier as well? In this technical presentation we will learn about the technical underpinnings of functional programming, the fundamental problems they address, and the large impact of those on application development.
