Check out our YouTube playlist to watch all the talks from Emerging Technologies for the Enterprise 2020.
The foundation of programming which many of us have used for 20 years is evolving into something new. Concepts including immutability, functions, ADTs, and pattern matching are helping us solve problems more reliably, understandably, and quickly.
This session will help you understand the evolutions happening in many OOP languages and how you can begin taking better advantage of these changes.
About James Ward
James Ward is a nerd / software developer who shares what he learns with others though presentations, blogs, demos, and code. After over two decades of professional programming, he is now a self-proclaimed Typed Pure Functional Programming zealot but often compromises on his ideals to just get stuff done. After spending too many sleepless nights in data centers repairing RAID arrays, he now prefers higher-level cloud abstractions with appropriate escape hatches. James is a huge Open Source proponent, hoping to never get burned by lock-in again.
