When am I ever going to use this? – Daniel Steinberg

When he taught high school and college math, Daniel was frequently asked “When am I ever going to use this?” A couple of years ago, he realized that the actual answer was sadly, “never.” In this keynote he considers how you might look at the math constructs that help us find the design patterns in functional programming. Swift may not be a functional language but it is a language that supports this style of programming. Please be warned that this talk includes explicit language including words like “Algebra” and “Geometry”.
