"Every Tuesday from 7pm you can come to The Skiff in Brighton, UK to meet fellow software developers interested in talking about everything from programming languages to startups and user experience. "
This week we're going to discuss the paper "Why functional programming matters". You can get a copy here:
"This paper is an attempt to demonstrate to the “real world” that functional programming is vitally important, and also to help functional programmers exploit its advantages to the full by making it clear what those advantages are."
What did you find interesting? What's useful? What was surprising? What did you learn? What was confusing?
Hopefully between us we can understand the paper.
