    I learn different languages not to make use of them, but to program in my current languages in a better way. As we adapt functional style of programming in mainstream languages, like Java, C#, and C++, we can learn a great deal from a language that is touted as a purely functional language.

    Haskell is statically typed, but not in a way like Java, C#, or C++. Its static typing does not get in the way of productivity. Haskell quietly does lazy evaluation and enforces functional purity for greater good. Everyday programmers, like your humble speaker, who predominantly code in mainstream languages, can greatly benefit from learning the idioms and style of this elegant language. The next time we sit down to crank out some code in just about any language, we can make use of some of those styles, within the confines of the languages, and move towards a better, functional style.

    Old languages emerge and new languages are born when big things happen, and big things are happening now. In this keynote, we'll look at some of the biggest challenges facing programming evolution, and their likely impacts on programming.

    Functional Programming Languages have a prominent role, but also there are interesting things happening in the browser and a pendulum shift toward better type models.

    It's been around for a long time, but everyone's talking about it all of a sudden. But why and why now? We've been

    programming in languages like Java for a while, quite well. Now we're asked to change and the languages themselves

    are changing towards this style of programming. In this keynote, a passionate polyglot programmer and author of

    "Functional Programming in Java: Harnessing the Power of Java 8 Lambda Expressions" will share the reasons

    we need to make the paradigm shift and the pure joy—the benefits—we will reap from it.

    Since the introduction of lambda expressions in C#, we have had two different style of programming. Yet, programmers used to the habitual style often find it easy to fall back on those old practices. In this presentation we will take a number of common tasks we code in C#, discuss the downsides of the habitual style, transform it into functional style, and discuss the benefits. We will also discuss some techniques that can help make this transformation easier on everyday projects.
