Functional Programming Languages - Why, where and how


System- og webudvikling


Get an introduction to the use, origins and benefits of functional languages from Joakim Ahnfelt-Rønne and Ramón Soto Mathiesen - both active in the Functional Copenhagener Meetup Group in Copenhagen.

Functional languages differ from imperative and object oriented languages in a number of ways, implying both strengths and weaknesses. Notable functional languages are Haskell, Erlang, Scala and F#, followed by Lisp, Clojure, OCaml among others.
Joakim and Ramón are both experienced developers and eager to share their experience and enthusiasm with others. The Functional Copenhageners Meetup Group is a community for coders and other enthusiasts working with functional languages in various software projects that aim to reach production.

Reliable, adj: To deliver the same result every time.

A purely functional program is a program that, given the same input, delivers the same result every time. The event will be divided in two:
• The first part will be a talk about building reliable software using functional programming in the face of real-world problems, such as networking, concurrency and file systems;
• The second part will be more of a practical talk where we all will be coding functionally but without using a computer, it's going to be ƒun, no pun intended.


These talks are aimed to people who want to hear/learn about functional programming languages without any prior knowledge to them. The talks are also language-agnostic, we focus on the paradigm and not so much on a specific implementation.
