Silicon Valley Code Camp : October 7 & 8, 2017session
The Functional Programming Converter project
Join us in our session where we will show you examples of alternative paradigms and teach you how to convert your existing code into a functional programming language.
About This Session
Many developers feel disheartened by functional programming because not only the language is different but the idioms, approach, and patterns also change.
The idea of this session is to present a list of strategies and patterns that are common to imperative programming and object oriented programming and show with examples how to make them work in a functional language.
The talk will include topics like working with immutability, recursion, replacing loops with well-known functions, avoiding null values, using function to short-circuit flow, dependency injection, variadic parameters, generative testing and testing with mocks
The examples will be mainly in Clojure, Scala, Haskell, F# and we may even include Elixir and Lua.
