Guest lecture: “Real-World Functional Programming @ Incubaid”Posted: December 15, 2011
The Incubaid Research team was invited by prof. dr. ir. Tom Schrijvers (University of Gent, UGent) to give a guest lecture about the industrial relevance of Functional Programming (FP), as part of his master course on “Functional and Logic Programming Languages” (which covers Haskell and Prolog).
The talk covered what we’re doing at Incubaid, why we are using FP (including advantages and disadvantages), as well as a short introduction to OCaml and a comparison to Haskell, taking the prior knowledge of the audience into account.
