Andrew Carver

I am a UNF College of Computing graduate now working as a full-stack software developer in Jacksonville. In my 6 years of experience in the software development industry, I've worked with several technologies including C#, F#, Javascript, React and Redux. My current passion is writing scalable architectures with functional programming. I believe that functional principles apply not only to mathematical or theoretical applications, but also to the everyday business problem. In my free time I enjoy playing video games, reading sci-fi novels and tinkering with the newest technologies.

Sessions with Andrew Carver
Introduction to Functional Programming with JavaScript
Track: Javascript/Front-end
Functional programming is a programming paradigm that's quickly gaining popularity. Technologies like React Redux, Elixir, Elang, Scala, Clojure and Microsoft's own F# are deeply committed to it's benefits. This talk will provide an introduction to the principles of functional programming, explain it's benefits and demonstrate how it can apply to everyday business problems using JavaScript. Laptops are highly encouraged as examples will be provided in JSBins for everyone to run the code and follow along.
