F(by) is the only functional programming conference in Belarus.
This year we have decided to focus on web development with functional programming. Presentations will be divided into 2 blocks: backend и frontend.
In the backend-part we'll see how tasks, that are standard for web, are being solved on such languages as Clojure and Scala, we'll also talk about functional approach in Kotlin.

Mario Arias is a programmer with more than 10 years of experience, mostly on JVM languages: Java, Groovy, Scala and Kotlin. An active member of the Kotlin community from the very first days, he created and maintain several Kotlin libraries. On his free time he trains BJJ and enjoy long cycling trips.
Jon has been involved in the Scala community for over a decade, having launched the first commercial and open-source Scala software back in 2005. Since then, he has successfully deployed Scala projects into small, medium and large businesses, and UK government, but is best known these days for his work on Rapture, the Scala World conference, and as chair of the Scala Center Advisory Board.

Haskeller, FP evangelist, tech saneness advocate, CTO at Typeable
Iaroslav Karkunov is a software developer from Kyiv, Ukraine. He has great expertise in mathematics and has been programming for 12 years. Iaroslav became interested in the functional programming since he started working with FP-languages 3 years ago. Currently, he is a team-lead in one of the most prominent e-learning companies in Europe - Area9Learning. Iaroslav is focused on the following stack of technologies - Erlang, Elixir, Phoenix, Elm and doing research about functional programming and its connections with mathematics.
Ruslan is a leader of Belarus Kotlin User Group and Java Professionals BY community driver, full stack developer at ObjectStyle. Every day he reads news and articles from more than 500 sources using RSS. He likes to explore new technologies and aspires to get a deep understanding of the problem. Hackathons, meetups and conferences? Yes, this is about him. Linux and other Free Software - runs the world.
Dmitry Ivanov is fascinated by everything related to building scalable and reliable distributed systems. He has been obsessed with Scala language and functional programming since around 2010. Dmitry is currently a Tech Lead at TomTom, Amsterdam, where he works on the personal data synchronization and storage platform called NavCloud. Previously, Dmitry worked at Reltio, Inc. on a cloud-based MDM service, and at other startups. In his spare time he is involved in organising various programming meetups around Amsterdam, and occasionally gives talks at those. Twitter: @idajantis
With the release of Scala 2.12 and work on dotty, things, that were possible only in runtime, become more realistic during compilation. In this presentation we'll consider classic practices of type level programming in Scala, as well as we'll learn how they will be influenced by new progress in compilers technologies that are worked at in EPFL.
A fast introduction to Kotlin programming language and its functional features alongside with funKTionale library * A tiny introduction to Kotlin * Function types * Extension points * Function composition, currying and partial application * Option, Either and Disjunction * Future developments
Category theory seems to be too abstract or too complex for many newcomers. But the essence of it is truly simple - composition, which we use while solving our problems not only in programming, but in our everyday life. Don't worry, even if you hate math - you still could do the category theory, because it is very different from the general mathematics. So let's learn about this together and talk about the basics of the category theory and their connections to the functional programming and our life.
A visit to CIDER's brewery where all the magic is happening. On this exciting journey you'll learn more about the current state and the future of the CIDER project. You will explore recently added features and CIDER's next release. You will also take some time to speculate about the future and you will discover the more ambitious plans lying around in our cellar. But above else - you'll have some fun while doing so!
Riemann is a specialized stream-processing engine, dedicated to monitoring distributed systems. Built on top of Clojure, it provides a comprehensive syntax for dealing with events. In this talk we will walk through the underlying concepts and the benefits of internal DSLs in Clojure.
Most people are familiar with the `s"Hello, $name"` syntax for composing strings, but that only touches the surface of what is possible in Scala. By combining it with other advanced Scala features such as implicits and macros, we open ourselves up to numerous powerful opportunities with applications in domain-specific languages and type-level programming.
Liberator is a clojure liberator to create web services that fully embrace the REST architectural style. In this talk you will learn about the motivation to create liberator and how it's very declarative style allows you to build resources that strictly conform with the HTTP semantics and leverage the full potential of HTTP.
Few inventions have brought the world closer together than HTTP, and what HTTP did for humans back in the 90s it's doing for machines today. Yet most developers only scratch the surface of this crucial protocol, why is that? One possible answer is that it's a tooling problem - we haven't yet developed sufficiently capable tools, tools that can industrialize the creation of APIs, powering the integration of the digital economy. By doing so, we might start to harness the full value of the protocol in helping our software to scale and adapt to change. This talk will provide a full tour of the features offered by yada and bidi, and what the libraries offer a web developer working in the Clojure language.
The systems-toolbox provides a thin layer on top of core.async for building distributed systems in both the browser and the backend. This talk will introduce the library and show how to build real-world applications with it.
