Functional Programming with Scala and Clojure – free training with Framework

Framework Training delivering free half- Functional Programming training course – 19th December 2014
By: Framework Training Ltd
LONDON - Oct. 23, 2014 - PRLog -- Framework Training are running the first of a series of free half-day instructor-led training sessions exploring the increasingly important field of Functional Programming which includes languages such as Scala, Haskell, F# and Clojure.
When would one use a Functional Programming language like Scala?  One of the key drivers is Concurrency which is becoming more and more important as massively-multi-core processors become widespread and GPUs are increasing used to perform highly parallel operations. Functional programming allows developers to more easily reap the performance increase that Concurrency delivers.

Other benefits include stability, testability and re-usability of code.
