Steve Vinoski, Verivue
For many years, the mainstream software development community has mostly viewed functional programming languages as academic curiosities. Thankfully, this is now changing, as more developers embrace functional languages with the hope of gaining from the higher levels of abstraction, source code brevity, and other benefits these languages offer. This is the first installment of Steve Vinoski's new column, "The Functional Web," which focuses on using functional languages for RESTful Web service application development.
Index Terms:
functional programming, web development, Representational State Transfer, REST, distributed systems, production software, the functional Web
