Learning From Our Elders

Learning From Our Elders: Applying functional insights without losing Swift

Swift is not a functional programming language. Pushing too hard to make it one fights Swift and breaks Cocoa.

We’ll explore how decades of work in functional languages have influenced Swift, and how you can use those features best while staying true to Swift.
