Instead of just bashing other paradigms I'll provide real arguments for FP, backed
I’ll talk about:
Most of FP hype lately bothers me, so I'll try to illuminate why FP matters in a way that avoids hype and buzzwords and is based on facts / research / CS papers. Good OOP will be mentioned as well with hopes that attendees will see it’s quite similar.
There's a number of talks / posts / articles now that tell you how it's great and why. These talks usually don't offer any data, they are rather based on particular experience like ""in my project, we did FP and it worked"". Or they start with bashing OOP, telling how it sucks, when they did OOP wrong
Instead of bashing, I'll outline few things which make FP interesting, without the hype and the ""you must be FP otherwise you're not a REAL programmer""
Talk will be backed by research and studies about each and every claim
