I Want to Believe (not sure yet)



Marc-Daniel Ortega shares code snippets showing how to implement some logic in a functional language inspired by “Functional Programming in Scala”, avoiding the OOP influence.


Marc-Daniel Ortega has been a developer for over 15 years in software edition and IT service and he has embraced the shift to FP 2 years ago joining the growing team of the Eligotech startup in Amsterdam. Even if his spare time is dedicated to his fascination for Lisp and practice of Coursera lectures, he can always find time to drive his friends in one of his beloved vintage cars.

About the conference

Last year was sci-fi themed around The Hitchikers Guide to the Galaxy and the magical ’42’ number. This year we go for charm and a rich history with the Tapis Rouge salons.
