Functional Programming

Modern programming in practice

WELCOME TO FUNCTIONAL SC
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#, Erlang, OCaml, Scala and more.

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


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

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

EXPRESSIVE
Abstract away boilerplate commonly found in popluar programming languages.

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

NO SIDE EFFECTS
The metaphorical rug isn't pulled from under your feet with small, reusable functions that don't tarnish the environment.

TESTABLE
This highly abstract environment leads to automated testing.

Game Development Teamup

Games don't write themselves. Without the knowledge and tools the Next Big Thing is still hidden inside your head. Bring your vision to life, we'd love to help.

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.

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.

Functional Game Development

While functional programming is making huge inroads in areas like web development and distributed computing, there is one kind of software where its use is still rare: games. The vast majority of games today, from the small indie variety up to triple-A titles, are written in a mostly standard way, filled with mutable variables and large object hierarchies.

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.

Linguistics and Compilers

Compilers are tools typically used to create binary we call software. Kenneth Miller has some interesting thoughts on extending the metaphor (and tools) to both human and programming languages.
