Topic: Get Functional – Staying Sane in JavaScript Land

JavaScript has evolved a lot over the past few years. With all these new language features, our JavaScript applications have finally gotten robust and simple, right? Well, I’m not so sure. In these regards, I think the current state is just about the same as it was ten years ago.

If you have ever worked on a brand new JavaScript project, that started to feel like an unmaintainable legacy project even before the first release, you know what I’m talking about. With increasingly more important and critical applications being implemented in JavaScript, we need to focus on quality more than ever before.

This presentation will teach you how to adopt a functional mindset in JavaScript. It will also show some pragmatic tools and functional programming concepts that you can use today, and what we might see in the future. Let’s write robust JavaScript code!
