If you attended either talk and you've yet to leave feedback then please do on the respective Joind.in pages:
The main take-aways from the talk are:
- Avoid state
- Keep things small
- Make reusable components
- Separate logic from data
These principles apply no matter whether you're writing in a functional style or object oriented approach. Learning functional programming is great idea even if you do not intend to use it day to day. Things you learn in a functional paradigm are directly applicable to your object oriented code too.
I enjoyed presenting at both events and it was great to meet you all!
