Let's Get Lazy: Explore the Real Power of StreamsSpeaker: Venkat Subramaniam – Broomfield, CO, United States
Topic(s): Web, Mobile and Multimedia Technologies
AbstractWhen we hear functional programming we often hear about immutability and higher-order functions. They are definitely important, but the real power of functional programming is in function composition and lazy evaluation. Using examples from Haskel, Scala, Java and/or C#, we will learn about applicative vs. normal order, deferred execution, lazy evaluation, how it leads to efficiency and opens the door for some wonderful implementations that are now within our easy reach.
