Ever tried functional languages? Ever been annoyed that every time you see the same Fibonacci examples or yet another maths problem? So what can functional languages really teach us on your day to day life as Android developers? This talk will focus on what you can learn from functional languages and how to apply those concepts to any language. Ben will start by exploring some concrete examples and see how some functional approaches can make your life easier. Join Ben into a journey towards a more functional Android.


Let's get Functional

Benjamin Augustin

Benjamin is a Software Craftsman and Android developer at Novoda. Ben might have started thinking functionally when, as a kid, he got hit on his head by a ladder while doing maths homework. Suddenly, he could see functions everywhere, and now he's sharing his visions with the world. Or maybe this is just one of those crazy made up back stories, who knows? One thing is sure, he is convinced that functional programming has a lot to teach us on our everyday work.
