Video: Oliver Sturm on Functional Programming and DevExpress Training Courses at NDC 2011

Did you know that Oliver Sturm was writing a book? Smile

It took him a while, but Oliver finally completed and published it: Functional programming in C#, and it is now available in all good outlets for your enjoyment.

Oliver is continuing his involvement with DevExpress as an expert consultant and trainer, but for this video I was interested in finding out what this functional programming stuff was all about.

I caught up with Oliver at NDC 2011 after he had delivered his sessions on functional programming in C# and F#. The links there will take you directly to the recordings of those sessions so that you can see what you missed.

In this short video, Oliver covers his upcoming ASP.NET focused DevExpress training courses, as well as the following:

  • What is functional programming?
  • Why is it useful?
  • How does it differ across programming languages (particularly C# and F#)
  • Why developers struggle to introduce new languages into their organisations

Take a look and leave your feedback on anything bought up in the video for us in the comments below.
