Next meeting: Functional JavaScript

Jul 20, 2017 6:30 PM

Functional programming has gotten increasing attention over the last couple of years. Popular frameworks such as React and Redux really take advantage of the functional characteristics of JavaScript. 

In this presentation, we will introduce the characteristics of functional programming. We will also rate how JavaScript compares to other functional programming languages like Haskel, Erlang, F#, Elixir, Scala, Scheme, Lisp and Closure.

Topics will include the Immutable.js library, higher order functions, functors, monads and promises. And we will also discuss the problems with the class keyword and null types.

Welcome to the JaxNode User Group

The Jacksonville Node.js and Javascript User Group is for anyone interested in learning more about Node.js and JavaScript. JavaScript was originally created for scripting web browsers, but now JavaScript applications run on the server, desktop and even robots.

Node.js is a JavaScript runtime built on Chrome's V8 JavaScript engine. Node.js uses an event-driven, non-blocking I/O model that makes it lightweight and efficient.

We also would like to encourage everyone to join the Jacksonville-Tech Slack group. This is a great place to ask questions and find out about what is going on in the tech community here in Jacksonville.
