We were thrilled with the turnout with over 65 attendees joined us with our keynote speakers Neal Ford from Thought-works and Eelco Visser from TU Delft. Neal shared his ideas in his most recent book: Functional Thinking . The takeaway was learning a new language is easy, but learning a new paradigm is hard. He showed us in real-time Java and Scala examples on how to go from imperative programming to being a functional programming. Download here
