Immutable Data and The Secret Art of Storytelling in Programming

In this talk, you will learn how to leverage persistent data structures to write code that flows like a story. A special kind of story that unfolds itself at the reader’s will. A story where – at any moment – the reader has a clear indication of what is about to happen and the freedom to choose whether they prefer to deep dive, or move forward.

When code flows like a story, it is not only more enjoyable to read. It is also easier to understand. It takes less time to debug, and less effort to maintain.
