Galois is pleased to host the following tech talk.
These talks are open to the interested public–please join us!
(There is no need to pre-register for the talk.)
At this year’s WWDC, Apple announced Swift, a new programming language
for iOS and OS X development. In this talk, I’d like to give a brief
overview of the language, focussing on its ‘functional features’. I’ll
try to demonstrate that there are exciting new possibilities for applying
functional programming technology to a new platform — like writing an
app that computes Fibonacci numbers without using a for-loop.
Wouter Swierstra is a lecturer at the University of Utrecht. He has
recently written a book, Functional Programming in Swift, together
with Chris Eidhof and Florian Kugler.
