Daniel Spiewak discusses how modern languages such as Scala, Clojure, and Haskell have moved beyond the simple lambda calculus paradigm, being better suited for large application architectures.
Daniel Spiewak is a software developer based out of Wisconsin, USA. Over the years, he has worked with Java, Scala, Ruby, C/C++, ML, Clojure and several experimental languages. He currently spends most of his free time researching parser theory and methodologies, particularly areas where the field intersects with functional language design, domain-specific languages and type theory. @djspiewak
