Presentation

The re-emergence of functional programming coincides nicely with the JavaScript renaissance. But where does the UI fit in? In this talk we'll cover the core concepts of Functional Reactive Programming while learning a practical application of them using Bacon.js. You'll learn how to build user interface components in a clear, declarative style by modeling both user interaction and back-end processing using one clean abstraction: streams of events.
