About the Conference
For over 35 years, functional programming has been a hot research topic. However in the last 5 years, driven by the need to build massively concurrent systems and to handle big-data, we've experienced a rapid adoption of functional programming concepts by diverse companies, ranging from tech start-ups to financial institutes.
These days, functional programming is at the heart of every, new generation programming technologies. Companies are employing functional programming to enable more effective, robust, and flexible software development. This has given birth to a very vibrant community of functional programmers, who are constantly exploring ways to bring functional programming concepts to the world of enterprise software development.
Functional Conf is designed to bring the growing community of functional programmers together under one roof. At Functional Conf:
- participants can understand the fundamentals concepts behind functional programming
- they can learn how others are using functional programming to solve real world problems
- practitioners can meet peers and exchange their experience
- experts can share their expertise on practical usage and gotchas in functional programming concepts
For the last 20 years, ThoughtWorks has led the industry, challenged it, and brought many innovations, open source technologies, and new ways of working to the mainstream. We are focused on helping our industry improve, and believe in sharing what we learn. We do this by writing books, blogging, running events, talking at conferences, and championing open source.
We've grown into a significant presence with 30 offices and 2500+ employees in 12 countries: Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Ecuador, Germany, India, Singapore, South Africa, Uganda, the United Kingdom, and the United States.
Our unique solution is trusted by more than 150 million users and leading mobile companies of the world including Supercell, Glu, Wordpress and the Times Group.
Our R&D team is based in Pune and is made of some of the brightest people. At work, Functional Programming techniques have been a big win for us in solving hard problems, sometimes even as a secret weapon.
If you're interested in functional programming, large scale distributed systems we would be happy to catch-up with you at the conference ☺
