Learn FP with Code Katas

Functional programming helps you reason about and test your code by breaking it into self contained pieces in pure functions. In this workshop you will be given a code kata and a set of constraints which train pair programming and functional thinking such as ping pong, navigator-driver, verbs instead of nouns. Each pair will pick up a language which supports functional programming and a constraint based on their self evaluated experience level. The idea is to use constraints to trigger creative problem solving.

Please bring your laptop which should be ready for development, with everything you need installed i.e. IDE and unit testing framework for languages such as Scala, Haskell, Clojure. Make sure it is set up properly by having a new project with a failing test. The workshop assumes basic programming skills and participants should be already able to solve problems using them. You can consider this a mini version of a coderetreat.

This session is held on in Tutorials #2
