Oden - A Functional Programming Language for the Go Ecosystem
This talk will introduce Oden, an experimental, statically typed, functional programming language built for the Go ecosystem. We will look at how Oden aims to leverage the great features of Go — static linking, cross-compilation, goroutines, channels and the great set of libraries and tools — and enable higher-level abstractions, generics and a safer yet more flexible type system.
After some years of musical education Oskar Wickström began his journey into the world of software development as a self-taught programmer. He started a company practicing web design and development for small businesses. He now works with software analysis and repository mining at Empear, along with various open source projects on his free time. Among the technical topics that interest Oskar are functional programming, systems design, and programming languages. His more aestetic side, which mostly involves making music, draws him towards graphics and UI design every now and then. He’s a bit of a restless soul, but it also means he gets a lot done.
