Working with Scala since a year with ThoughtWorks. Have delivered talks on Functional Programming before.
With the advent of the cloud era and the multitude of cloud vendors, we wish to demonstrate a case study of a sample application hosted on two of the leading providers, Amazon and Google, and present our observations on various factors like cost, performance, reliability etc. in an attempt to guide the audience in making a decision in selecting their cloud service provider for their application.
You must have heard people talk about Functional programming whilst your nod apprehensively, and how cool people do functional programming. You must have heard people talk about functional purity and imperative blasphemy. But what exactly does functional programming entail? Why is it making a comeback? This talk is aimed at providing an objective and practical view of what FP can and cannot do, and how it's nothing to be scared of, what languages support functional style and how it can help alleviate some common programming problems.
