Functional Programming

A better way to write software

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.

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.

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.
