The open source, functional programming platform flow
- Programming / Tools
- Open Source
Flow is a programming language and platform that we’ve been developing over many years. It’s a functional language. In the talk I’ll be giving an introduction to Flow, the runtime, the UI library. I will show some of the benefits that this language can give. The key point is that even though Flow is just one of programming languages, the way of thinking that we do in this language is generally applicable. I will demonstrate how you can think about, how to structure your application using some of the principles that we use, as they can be applied in many other programming platforms as well.
