Galois tech talk: Functional programming in Swift

Galois, Inc

Portland, OR 97204, US (map)



Galois is pleased to host the following tech talk. These talks are open to the interested public–please join us! (There is no need to pre-register for the talk.)

abstract: At this year’s WWDC, Apple announced Swift, a new programming language for iOS and OS X development. In this talk, I’d like to give a brief overview of the language, focussing on its ‘functional features’. I’ll try to demonstrate that there are exciting new possibilities for applying functional programming technology to a new platform — like writing an app that computes Fibonacci numbers without using a for-loop.

bio: Wouter Swierstra is a lecturer at the University of Utrecht. He has recently written a book, Functional Programming in Swift, together with Chris Eidhof and Florian Kugler.
