During tonight's meetup, we were lucky enough to have 2 presenters:
- Jim Duey - Who gave a brief introduction to functional programming through the use of Clojure
- Andy Gill - Who talked about how his academic research utilizes Haskell
I thought both of these presentations were very interesting and helpful to understand why functional programming can be better in situations than OOP.
I look forward to the next meeting and hearing more about this new paradigm of programming.
