Our next meetup
Functional Programming in PHP
Speaker: Zsolt Szende
It's becoming increasingly difficult to ignore the term 'Functional Programming' while reading online discussions about programming languages or programming in general. People discussing FP routinely use terms that can be strange and unfamiliar to developers coming from the imperative/OO world.
What exactly is Functional Programming? Where does it come from? How does it differ from the programming I know?
This talk will try to answer these questions by weaving seemingly unrelated concepts into a (hopefully) coherent story of FP, using PHP as the vehicle of expressing these ideas. The side effect (pun intended) of having a basic grasp of FP will make you a better developer, which will make you a better PHP developer.
About the speaker:Zsolt Szende started hacking on his Dad's C64 at the ripe age of 6. He's been working as a developer in London for 12 years, the last 8 being as an independent contractor, helping companies write better software. His love of math led him down the FP rabbit hole a while ago and ever since he's trying to understand concepts that he thought he understood before.
