Thinking Functionally


The rise in AI, machine learning & data lakes is driving greater use of Functional Programming, so how well do you know the concepts? We will discuss immutable data, functional composition, polymorphism, higher-order functions, pattern matching & recursion. These concepts helps the developer create performant, complex system with simple building blocks, using parallelism to make applications & services more scalable. Using Clojure as live code examples, you will understand the important functional concepts & patterns that you can apply to your own preferred languages.
