Computer Science Homecoming Presentation: Tackling Concurrency with Functional Programming
(Educational Opportunity)

By Renaldo Pierre-Louis, Software Engineer, Hedgeye Risk Management, LLC (2013) & Eric Kosgey, Technology Associate, Morgan Stanley (2014)

With the growth of multi-core technology, concurrency has become key in the implementation of modern systems. Consequently, functional programming has grown in popularity due to its strong support for writing concurrent programs.

In this presentation, we will explore the main characteristics that make functional languages a favorite in concurrent programming. We will investigate why features such as immutable data structures, and referential transparency make it easier to write concurrent programs using functional programming languages.

Location: Danforth Technology, Room 108A
