Summary

Jessica Kerr introduces a different way of thinking about I/O, delaying all side-effects to the end, illustrating manipulating code as data, and at the same time letting data influence the code.

Bio

Jessica Kerr (@jessitron) writes Scala for a living. She's still recovering from ten years of Enterprise Java. For entertainment, she blogs and speaks about functional programming and git, sneaking in a little cognitive science. Jessica is a native of StrangeLoop - I mean, St. Louis. In between user groups, she leads two children on crazy adventures.
