Adam Gordon Bell, “Functional Programming is Undefined”

October 21, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm CDT

Functional Python Programming and Verified Functional Programming in Agda are both books teaching functional programming.  Yet the books are about very different things. How can this be?  Over the course of 58 interviews, Adam Gordon Bell has interviewed many experts on software development. These include programming language creators, high-performance computing experts, and functional programming gurus.  In this session, Adam will share some behind-the-scenes information about the podcast and a collection of insights he has learned from his guests.  One of these insights is that functional programming, as a term, is undefined.
Adam is a software engineer and an open-source advocate.  He is currently working on the open-source build tool earthly (http://earthly.dev/) . He is the host of the popular software development podcast Corecursive (http://corecursive.com/).
