Tim Thornton, a software developer with Kx Labs in Ontario, gave a talk called Data Analysis with Vector Functional Programming at the YOW! Lambda Jam, a conference which takes a deep dive into functional programming and was held in Brisbane, Australia, April 28-29, 2016.
In his description of his 26-minute talk Tim said:
The attendee will leave the talk with a basic understanding of the vector functional paradigm, how it may be useful in practical domains, an understanding of array-based thinking (practical in any functional programming language), and hopefully, an appreciation — or at least openness — toward terse and precise syntax.
