Two weeks ago, I had the pleasure of attending the BOB Konferenz 2016 in Berlin, Germany, where I gave an introductory talk on functional reactive programming (FRP) in english. The talk was videotaped and the recording is now available online. So, if you like to hear a short introduction from me on what FRP is all about, and why it’s a good idea, I invite you to have a look. Slides are available, too.
The purpose of the conference was to bring together
[…] developers, architects and builders to explore technologies beyond the mainstream and to discover the best tools available today for building software.
My favorite talks were the presentation by Andres Löh on the Servant library, which allows the specification of REST APIs in the type system and eliminates a lot of boilerplate, and the talk by Stefan Wehr on the Swift language (that new language by Apple), where he demonstrated that functional programming actually has already become mainstream.
