«Introduction to functional programming / Why it is fun

An introduction to functional programming by Joost.


Basic understanding of programming is required. No previous knowledge of functional programming is expected. Bring your laptop if you want to try some of the code yourself but it is not required.


The language used during the workshop will be Ocaml. But the principles are equally applicable to other functional languages like Haskell, Erlang, scala, F#, lisp, scheme, ... and no knowledge of Ocaml is required.
