Simplified Functional JS for the win!

Presented by Jeff Barczewski

Learn how embracing a functional approach with JS can dramatically improve your development process, testing, re-use, and maintenance. Develop code that is bulletproof, resilient and easy to reason about. Functional techniques can be applied in an evolutionary manner as you grow accustomed to the concepts. Anyone can start using functional techniques today, no math degree required. It just takes an open mind and a passionate teacher to get started. Jeff will explain why functional approaches are so beneficial and will show you pragmatic ways to ease into functional programming. Once you’ve seen the light, it will likely forever change how you approach development.
