Episode #878 Thursday, June 6, 2013

Carl and Richard talk to James Kovacs about functional programming with JavaScript. Functional programming with JavaScript? What can't JavaScript do? James starts out talking about underscoreJS, a key library to simplify functional programming and provide some awesome features to keep your web pages running well. The conversation also digs into Single Page Applications in the context of functional programming, where you can go wrong, and why you want these tools in your toolbox to build the best web applications you can.


James Kovacs

A long time ago in a galaxy far far away James was a frequent guest on .NET Rocks. He spoke at conferences, wrote magazine articles, and had an active Twitter account. Then a career change landed him at MongoDB where he has spent the last 5 years in self-inflicted obscurity. During that time, he has worked on the Technical Support Team assisting customers with the core database product and more recently on the Drivers Team building the language-idiomatic drivers that allow developers to connect to MongoDB. His current focus is implementing new features in the MongoDB .NET/C# driver, which is used by millions of developers worldwide.
