Home » An approach to functional programming and trending programming paradigms debated at Codecamp Cluj-Napoca on 11 November

Over 2000 attendees

Last Saturday, AXON Soft participated as a partner of the 4th edition of Codecamp in Cluj-Napoca in order to strengthen our mutual commitment to the local community of IT professionals. The event was gladly received and attracted over 2000 attendees driven by their passion for IT.

The event included a full day of presentations provided by local and international speakers on topics of current interest in JAVA, .NET, PHP, Agile Development and so on. The great number of attendees and the willingness to find out more techniques surrounding certain IT topics came together to make a great Saturday for new and fresh ideas.

A topic of interest for JAVA professionals was discussed by our speaker, Martino BETTUCCI. He delivered a session about ‘Functional Programming and New Programming Paradigms’. Martino explained the differences between two mathematical concepts, the ‘Touring Machine’ and ‘Lambda Calculus’, and how these reflect into different mindsets – the Imperative and the Functional programming. In order to have a better understanding of the concepts, he used several practical examples in Java 9. At the end Martino offered a live running demo, using the same algorithm written in the two different programming styles, showing how each reflects into the written code and into the use of the hardware resources, giving also ideas on which one should be used depending on certain scenarios.

In conclusion, we are excited to say it was an intense session and we would like to thank all the participants for their interest. We really enjoyed seeing such a big IT community in our town! See you at the next Codecamp edition!
