Talk: Fantastic Mr. Function

This talk is a mix of live coding (in JavaScript) and presentation. No functions would be harmed In this light-hearted introduction to functional programming, but they will be used in some weird and wonderful ways.

We'll make some new friends (feel free to bring your bird-watching kits), meet some brilliant minds and bask in the glory of the ultimate abstraction - the function. All that on our short but eventful journey to the very beginnings of computing!
