MONADS IN THE REALM OF OBJECT ORIENTED PROGRAMMING
View monads.md

A monad is a particular construction that emerges in the branch of mathematics called category theory. Despite category theory being one of the most abstract field in mathematics, monads are heavily used in functional programming as a design pattern that allows, for example, to manage side-effects. Why should such a powerful design pattern be used only in functional programming languages? Is it possible to apply it also in an Object Oriented paradigm?

In this talk we will try to answer these questions, exploring in parallel the notion of monad in category theory, in functional programming and in object oriented programming, with the help of various examples taken from all the three different worlds.

ELM OR HOW I LEARNED TO LOVE FRONT-END DEVELOPMENT
View elm.md

Front-end development is evolving very rapidly, with new frameworks appearing and then declining very rapidly. Among the many options that a developer has for developing the graphical user interface of its web application, Elm steps out as one of the most original and most promising approaches. It combines the principles of reactive programming with the elegance of strongly typed functional programming, still providing a nice integration with javascript code.

In this talk Marco will present Elm digging into at a real project built with it, exploring the best features of the language and focusing on the architecture that naturally emerges building Elm applications, which is great for modularity, code reuse and testing.
