Description

Thanks to our friends at Monzo for hosting us :)


Talks from Jason Dryhurst-Smith & Yan Cui.


Jason's talk:
"OO Considered Harmful? Time to go functional?"

There is a lot of talk at the moment about the power of a functional approach to programming, and a lot of pressure felt by a lot of engineers to start adopting this ‘better way’. The question is, is it really better, and if so, when is it better? You heard it’s good for finance, but maybe you don’t do finance. This talk hopes to lay out one possible set of simple guiding principles for when to go functional, and when you might want to stay clear.


Yan's talk:

"Seven ineffective coding habits many F# programmers don't have"

At BuildStuff 14, Kevlin Henney presented an excellent talk titled "Seven ineffective coding habits of many programmers". As an attendee that day and someone who has exhibited many of these habits over the years, Yan came to realize that using F# has cured him of many of these ineffective habits!
In this talk Yan will share my thoughts on how the use of F# and functional programming techniques can help form and nurture good habits and give you the perfect practice you need to make perfect.
