Modelling Side Effects via Extensible Effects and Property Testing



William Heslam describes a technique to model a JavaScript's side-effecting dependencies by combining two separate but complementary ideas: Extensible Effects and Property Testing.


William Heslam is a functional JavaScript fan. Among his many interests are going on protest marches and playing point-free code golf. In his spare time he likes fiddling with Turing patterns and speculating about the Fourth Futamura Projection. He can often be found combing through second hand book shops for obscure tomes on forgotten programming languages.

About the conference

For two days you are at the centre of the functional programming world. It is a place where academia meets industry, where research and practical application collide.
