Dr. Carsten Leue
I am a software developer and architect at IBM R&D in Böblingen, Germany. Having worked on large scale backend and frontend solutions has led to value functional programming patterns, independent on the programming language. In this presentation I would like to discuss how such pattern can be applied to the Go programming language using the open source libary.

Check out more from the MeetUp Func Prog Sweden. Func Prog Sweden is the community for anyone interested in functional programming. At the MeetUps the community explore different functional languages like Erlang, Elixir, Haskell, Scala, Clojure, OCaml, F# and more.
