You can come to one or both days. Only 35 seats available. Early bird prices available until Mar. 7th.
Day 1 Overview
If our goal is to write cleaner, clearer, more understandable code—and it should be—ES6 offers myriad improvements that make our efforts so much more effective.
- Arrow functions
- Block scoping
- Rest/spread operators
- Template literals
Day 2 Overview
Armed with our new-found knowledge for writing clean, expressive, declarative ES6+ code, we’ll turn our attention to functional programming (FP).
We’ll walk step by step through each practical FP pattern, staying as far from those crazy functor-like words as we can. We’ll see just how sensible and intuitive many parts of FP really are.
- Side effects versus pure functions
- Function composition
- Value immutability
- Partial application and currying
- List operations (map, reduce, filter)
- Fusion and transducing
Pizza and drinks will be served for lunch and we’ll be right across the street from Bayside Marketplace if you prefer to go grab something else for lunch.
