Writing concurrent, fast, and reliable APIs is hard but what if we could make them easier to reason about, easier to test, easier to debug, and easier to parallelize? In this talk, we are going to see how we can apply functional programming concepts to improve the readability and performance of our APIs and how to integrate these concepts with the frameworks we use in our day-to-day job.
