“BUILD STUFF” is a Software Development Conference for people who actually build stuff. We bring world-class speakers, letting them share about the latest developments, trends and innovations, as well as new directions in software development. Since launching in 2012, it’s really caught on quickly.

Recognized by developers from all over Europe, international Software Development Conference Build Stuff’15 Lithuania will feature 3 days (18-20 Nov’15) of conference sessions and 2 days (21-22 Nov’15) of workshops.

Transitioning from OOP to functional style can be quite challenging, not least because OO programmers are used to thinking in nouns. Programming languages that use functions as primary means of abstraction force one to:

- design things in terms of verbs,
- find new ways of doing composition,
- rediscover polymorphism in a different light.

Fear not! What you have learned about good OO design can be applied to FP, in obvious and weird ways. Code examples will be presented in Clojure.
