Functional Programming

Elegant weapons for a more civilized age

Functional Programming is style of crafting software that allows programmers to create simpler software for complex problems, saving you money and time.

We advocate for all functional programming technologies, in many standard programming languages or with one tailored for it such as:
Haskell, Clojure, F#, Scala, Erlang, OCaml, Scala and more.

Based in historic Charleston, South Carolina we are open to all to learn and explore technology.

Powerful type systems shake out many problems before the program even runs.

Doing more than one thing at a time is easier with Functional Programming.

Abstract away boilerplate commonly found in popluar programming languages.

Why tell the computer how to do something when you can just tell it what you want?

The metaphorical rug isn't pulled from under your feet with small, reusable functions that don't tarnish the environment.

This highly abstract environment leads to automated testing.

F# Type Providers

Introduced in F Sharp 3.0, Type Providers are components that provide types, properties, and methods to an application to facilitate information rich programming. In other words a type provider automatically exposes the types which represent provider’s data structures.

Functional Thinking

Concepts of functional programming is made much harder when the developer is also trying to learn a new language, like Haskell, Scala or Clojure at the same time. With that in mind, we focus on relating functional concepts in a common language: Java.

Introduction to F#

With a pre-recorded presentation, we explore the unique features that F# offers to functional developers: functions, composition, piping, discriminated unions, active patterns and computation expressions.

Think Different

With such a conspicuous title you'd think this was meant to be ironic or a post-modern arthouse diatribe. Nope, I'm just asking you to literally think differently, because the future depends on it. Non-ironic drama intended.

Practical Functional Programming: The Virtues of Laziness

When you're new to Functional Programming, or struggling to learn it after coming from an Object Oriented background, you're likely to ask: "This is so different, what's the practical aspect?"

Bare Metal Functional Programming With Symbolics

The Symbolic's Lisp Machine is an amazing and unique computer designed with one thing in mind: run functional programs as fast as possible using hardware specifically designed for the language!
