Here’s why you should join us!

By coding along with us for this two day workshop you’ll:

  • Rearrange how we think about functions, including powerful new patterns for managing its inputs and output
  • Learn how pure functions avoid side effects
  • Discover what a candy factory has to do with function composition
  • Understand how recursion helps us understand recursion
  • List operations (map/filter/reduce) and how to find lists in our code even when they’re not literal
  • Apply functional concepts to modeling values over time (asynchrony)
  • Advance our FP mastery with fusion, transducing, and monads

Spend the Day Immersed With a Leading JavaScript Master

Functional Programming (FP) is deeply loved by its adherents, but often feared by the common folk that struggle to juggle all the notation, types and category theory, and terminology.

Naively, I used to think, “Hey, I use functions in my code, I must be doing functional programming." Boy was I wrong! I mean, yeah, the function is at the heart of FP, but the fact is, most of us don't even fully understand what a function should be!

There's got to be a better way to learn the important principles of FP, and what they can do for our code — improve readability by being more trustable and verifiable! — than to get a university degree steeped in CS theory.

FP transforms our code in powerful and important ways, but we need to look at each concept carefully to develop an intuition for starting to think more like a function. Along with my latest book of the same name, this 2-day workshop is your path to that deeper understanding. It's the ground-up guide you've been wanting, even if you didn't know you needed it!

How We'll Spend Each Day

Functional-Light programming (in JavaScript!) is above all a pragmatic balance between pure FP thinking and imperative just-get-it-done code. Using the core concepts of FP as an aspirataional guide — not a straight-jacket — our goal is to write JS not only we can understand, but others who read our code. This course is by no means a beginner intro; it's a rigorous and deep dive, but one where you actually get to understand the whys and hows.

Functional Programming is a steep cliff to climb, and most FP literature expects that you're already pretty adept at mountain climbing when throwing you at the wall. Functional-Light is simple climbing gear and a more gradual slope to trek. By the top of that hill, you'll look around and see the landscape more clearly. And from there, you'll better understand how the rest of the climb will go, should you choose it.

What Past Attendees Are Saying

"Superb presentation from a genuine domain expert. I learned a ton today."

Steve Jakubowski

"Keep up the good work. I've attended a lot of online workshops, and they are very shallow and unpractical. Most of the time, online people are treated as second class, but still paying citizens. Here we get all the content and get to participate as well (if only there was a way to get those cookies...)."

Adrian Murillo

"The class was great. It was really cool to get a bunch of links to example code to look at during the presentation and after the class."

Nate Yourchuck

"Good location and facility. Great technology for capture, presentation layout and video streaming. Really excellent being able to view the videos afterwards. It takes away the sense of having to absorb everything immediately or else lose it into the ether. It was fun. What more can you ask for?"

Laurence Bates

"Really well run...loved the communication pre-event. Very impressed with everything...this was my first online conference purchase, but I would definitely consider doing it again."

Jeff Sims

"I really enjoyed the online workshop experience. It is much better than just watching videos. I was able to participate in the conversations and benefit from other folks' questions."

Dana Greenberg

"You guys did a really great job! I cannot say enough good things about the experience."

Richard Ranke

"Everything was first class: excellent instructor, material, video, moderator, audio. Thank you!"
