Conquering concurrency with functional programming

Conquering concurrency with functional programming

Some people claim functional programming is useless because in the end there will be side effects - or else your program won't do anything useful. That's not true, and as it turns out purely functional programming is really good at solving some real-world problems, like concurrency.
I'll talk about how shared mutable state, queues, and streams can be used in purely functional programs, and why such a solution might be preferred over over the classical ways of managing concurrent state.
