I am a developer and writer, working at I usually work on application architecture, though sometimes I build compilers or robots.


Many developers get lost in the hype of object oriented design. They miss out on how expressive and succinct their code could be if they tried functional programming. Take Monads, for instance. Many developers haven’t even heard the name, much less are able to describe what Monads are and how they can be useful in every-day code. In this talk, we’ll gain a clear and simple understanding of what Monads are, and how they can help us to refactor our code to be clear and concise.
