Session: Learning Functional Programming
Functional Programming (FP) is another programming paradigm. In this talk, I will explain why I believe it is beneficial for you to learn this and share tips on making your first steps. I will describe FP benefits, as well as providing examples. If you are curious, join in! There will be lots of encouragement and pointers to the resources for a start.
- What is Functional Programming
- Why you should try a new programming paradigm
- Which functional language to choose for learning
- Where to start your learning path
I am a Software Engineer with years of experience applying Functional Programming in production. Also, I am an active OSS member, maintainer, mentor, content-maker and co-creator of an open-source organisation – Kowainik. Being a Functional Programming enthusiast, I enjoy using new concepts to solve challenges in production. I am fluent in Haskell, Elm, Purescript. I am also a tech follower with love for learning and experimenting. My experience in different domain fields (such as Healthcare, Insurance, Morgage, etc.) gives me the advantage of making decisions on architecture and design. I believe that the right tools in the right places could ease and even save lives, so I am definitely trying to make the world a better place through my goals.
