Functional programming

Host: Ola Bini

After fifty years of academic usage, functional programming is finally entering the wider world and seeing real mainstream uptake. But functional programming is still seen as a somewhat obscure practice by many developers. This track contains discussions and talks about different aspects related to functional programming without putting to much focus on any one specific language. Ever wondered what functional programming is really about? Are there functional design patterns just as there are object oriented design patterns? What are monads, really? This track will answer these kind of questions, and many more.
