About this event

Here is your chance to get a soft introduction to functional programming! Using JavaScript we will look at the elementary principles of functional programming including functions, immutability, and purity. Using these fundamental principles we will learn about the Functor, a primitive concept in most functional programming languages. You may already be familiar with an existing Functor named Array! We will look at other instances of Functors and how to use them to make your code more reasonable and effective.
