Functional Programming in Anger
While functional programming may be a simpler and more expressive way to build applications, even functional software endeavors over time are dominated by problems surprisingly similar to those found in traditional approaches. Besides leading ClojureScript compiler development, I’ve had the fortunate opportunity to work closely with a diverse set of clients on ambitious projects and experience their ClojureScript pain points first hand. In this talk, we’ll cover the benefits provided by functional programming without ignoring the many past glaring holes in our technology that have been slowly filled over time by observing users trying to ship real products.
