In partnership with QCon and Skills Matter, Rob Harrop will give a talk on "Is the Future Functional?"
Recently we've seen a resurgence of mainstream functional programming. Languages such as Clojure, F# and Scala are bringing functional programming techniques back into everyday usage. Is this an indicator that the future of programming is going to be functional?
In this talk Rob Harrop explains why he thinks it is likely that functional will the predominant paradigm in the near future and explore what the impact of such a move would be.
We'll discuss the landscape of functional languages, reasons why the move to functional will benefit us and what changes we'll have to make to the way we work.
