Let's Get Functional
About
Let’s get back to basics, for a minute. No frameworks, no libraries; just pure and plain ol’ JavaScript. In a nutshell, this talk is going to explain all the delightful ways to functionally program with JavaScript and how it can be applied to your application to optimize your code. We'll properly delve into the concept of functional programming in JavaScript and explore some real life applications of the benefits of writing functional code. We’re going to focus on keywords like ‘immutability’ and ‘state’. If we’re feeling adventurous, we’ll even throw in a closure or two.
