Join CFI's series of digital meet-ups where we simplify some of the most common (and terrifyingly confusing) terms within coding! This week we'll break down functional programming!

About this event

Welcome to our digital series '____: What Are Those?!?!?! And Other Scary Coding Acronyms.' This week, our co-leader and 5g software engineer of Ericsson, Madisen Whitfield, will try and simplify functional programming by explaining:

  • What is a Functional Programming language (FPL)

  • Why/where FPL's are used?

  • How do FPL's differ from other types of languages

  • Code comparison

  • How to think in a functional way

  • FPL general concepts

  • Additional resources for learning more about FPLs

Need help with something code-related or in the mood to laugh at corny coding memes? Join our discord server here:
