The Future of Functional Programming on iOS

This is a presentation I gave at NSSpain 2014: http://nsspain.com/2014/

Code used in the presentation: https://github.com/AshFurrow/NSSpain2014

The "Functional Programming in Swift" book is available at http://www.objc.io/books/

The new Artsy Swift app written in ReactiveCocoa is available at http://github.com/artsy/eidolon

    It will not be we make apps for the WATCH

    5 and the other future iOS devices. It will be a group of developers very much like us. But with more of our strengths and fewer of our weaknesses. More confident, far-seeing, and capable of using functional paradigms. For all of our failings, despite our limitations and fallibilities, we developers are capable of greatness. —Carl Sagan

    what is functional programming? • Treat computation as the result

    of functions • Avoid mutable state and data

    so where now? • Swift promised functional patterns • Failed

    to deliver • Community is picking up the slack
