Jakub Kozłowski – Conquering Concurrency with Functional Programming (45 minutes)

Some people claim functional programming is useless because in the end there will be side effects – or else your program won’t do anything useful. That’s not true (at least not in user code), and as it turns out purely functional programming is really good at solving some real-world problems, like concurrency. I’ll talk about how shared mutable state, queues, and streams can be used in purely functional programs, and why such a solution might be preferred over over the classical ways of managing concurrent state.
