Episode #117: Functional Python with Coconut

Published Wed, Jun 21, 2017, recorded Mon, May 22, 2017.

One of the nice things about the Python language is it's at least 3 programming paradigms in one: There's the procedural style, object-oriented style, and functional style.

This week you'll meet Evan Hubinger who is taking Python's functional programming style and turning it to 11. We're talking about Coconut. A full functional programming language that is a proper superset of Python itself.

Show note: Sorry for the lower audio quality in my voice on this one. Looks like my primary mic had trouble and the fallback wasn't as good as it should be. Plus, I had mostly lost my voice from PyCon (PyCon!!! And other loud speaking).
