About the Conference
First Erlang & Elixir Factory Lite Conference in India
Nov 17th, Hosted by Functional Conf
Functional programming has been a hot research topic for over three decades now. However, in the last five years, driven by the need to build massively concurrent systems and to handle big-data in smarter ways, diverse companies - ranging from tech start-ups to financial institutes - are rapidly adopting functional programming concepts.
Currently, functional programming is at the heart of every new generation programming technology. Companies are employing functional programming to actuate more effective, robust, and flexible software development. This has given birth to an extremely vibrant community of functional programmers, who are constantly exploring new and varied ways to bring in functional programming concepts to the enterprise software development world.
Functional Conf is designed to bring together the growing community of functional programmers under one roof.
At Functional Conf:
- Participants can understand the fundamental concepts of functional programming
- Participants can learn how others are leveraging functional programming to solve real world problems
- Experts can share their expertise on practical usages and gotchas in functional programming concepts
- Practitioners can meet peers and exchange real-world experience
GO-JEK is Indonesia’s first unicorn is currently the fastest growing start-up in South Asia and the largest in Indonesia in terms of valuation, funding raised and number of transactions. Having started as a bike-taxi hailing business, the start-up grew more than 900X (that's 90,000%) in just 18 months and diversified into food delivery, one-hour courier delivery, grocery delivery and has even aggregated trucks on its platform. It has partnered with over 300,000 two wheel and four wheel drivers and 5,000 trucks across Indonesia, all of whom, collectively cover an average distance of 7 million kilometres each day.
In August 2016, GO-JEK had raised over $550 million in a new round of funding led by KKR and Warburg Pincus LLC, the largest ever for an Indonesian technology start-up. GO-JEK is now the largest food delivery company in the world outside the China market, and is the equivalent of three Indian Unicorns combined in the transport, food delivery and payments markets.
With over 40 million app downloads, GO-JEK's platform powers the Indonesian equivalents of Indian Taxi Aggregators, Food Delivery Start Ups, HyperLocal Start Ups, Digital Wallet startups and Home Service based startups, all in one, at a comparable scale. Its GO-FOOD business alone does more daily orders than all Indian food tech start-ups combined.
