Functional Programming

Think different

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#, Scala, 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.

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.

So You Want to Learn Java?

Java is a great software development language. Used by millions of people daily, it's incredibly popular being the the primary language of businesses, Android software development and Minecraft. Java has excellent tool support, offering integrated debugging and many many libraries that can solve many many problems.

Don't Fear the Monad

Functional programming is increasing in popularity these days given the inherent problems with shared mutable state that is rife in the imperative world. As we march on to a world of multi and many-core chipsets, software engineering must evolve to better equip software engineers with the tools to exploit the vast power of multiple core processors as it won't come for free as it did in the recent past which was predictably based on Moore's law.

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.

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.

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.
