Leveraging the power of Arrow to build Android(Kotlin) apps using Functional Programming

With the advent of Arrow, building FP apps is Kotlin has become quite easy. Arrow is a library for Typed Functional Programming in Kotlin. Arrow brings with itself many of the functional paradigms of programming for daily development like Option, Try, Either, IO, Functor, Applicative, Monad, High order abstractions, Type Classes and many more. This session will focus on the basics of FP in arrow(with examples), including setup required for Arrow, building a simple Kotlin app using Arrow and will conclude by code-walkthrough and demo of an MVP app built on Android using Arrow.

    Hi Monika,

    Thanks for the proposal.

    Based on our past experience, attendees don't give good feedback for overview sessions. I could be wrong, but most of what you've defined in the outline, I can learn here: https://arrow-kt.io/docs/

    What would really help if you can get into deeper topics, based on your experience having built and deployed apps using Arrow.
