How to get away with Functional Programming in front-end applications

How to get away with Functional Programming in front-end applications

Functional programming is becoming pervasive in every branch of development, and if you're starting a new frontend project you can choose from many languages that allow you to embrace FP from the start.

In this presentation, we'll see how we can progressively migrate a codebase to TypeScript and start reaping the benefits of functional programming. You'll learn how to sneak FP into your code base, and get away with it!
