Functional Programming eXchange 2012 @skillsmatter


Today Skills Matter brought to the London developer community our third annual Functional Programming eXchange.  This one day, one track conference featured talks, open-space discussions and brainstorming on the latest ideas, best tools, and best practices in scala, clojure, haskell and F#.

Did you make it along?  Leave a comment and let us know what you thought of it!  Even better, you could write a blog post about it and leave a link to your post in the comments — we’ll Tweet about it in return.

If you aren’t in the UK, not in London, or just couldn’t make it, that’s OK.  We know nobody’s perfect.  Luckily, as with all our events the talks were recorded — all credit to our talented Skillscaster, Satyajit Saha, who has worked tirelessly to record and upload them faster than you can say “object-oriented”.  See below for links to the talks:

David Pollak on Visi.Pro bringing functional programming to the masses

Erik Hesselink on SilkApp: A Case Study in Creating Rich Internet Apps in Haskell

Loic Denuziere on FPish: leveraging F# and WebSharper in a large-scale web application

Kevin Wright on Akka at Zeebox: A case study

Andres Löh on Haskell for embedded domain-specific languages

Tomas Petricek on F#’s Type Providers In Depth

John Stevenson on Clojure made simple

Robert Rees on Who uses Clojure and why?

Bruce Durling on Clojure and Incanter for the Professional Programmer

and when you’re done with that goldmine of Functional Programming knowledge, you can see some photos from today’s eXchange here.
