Three Devs and a Maybe
About This Show
Join us each week as we discuss all things software development. Frequently joined by a far more intelligent guest on the show's topic, we by no means know everything, but love what we do. Topics range from daily developer life, PHP, frameworks, testing, good software design and our experiences using many other programming languages.

116: Programming Like Functions Matter with Jimmy Burrell and Scott Wlaschin
6 days ago
In this weeks episode we are joined by Jimmy Burrell and Scott Wlaschin to discuss all things functional.
We start off the show highlighting how Scott got into programming, the reasons why he is a big fan of Smalltalk, what he means by ‘Enterprise OO’ and being a Humanistic programmer.
From here we discuss how he got into FP, how the paradigm came to being, what FP is to Scott and why you should consider it.
Finally, we mention the differences between types in FP over langauges such as C, the railway track metaphor he uses to help explain FP concepts and architectural patterns that are more or less suited to FP.
