Functional Geekery Episode 42 – Claudia Doppioslash

In this episode I talk with Claudia Doppioslash. We talk about how she first got into functional programming; her experience with Clojure, Haskell, Idris, Erlang, Elixir, LFE, and Elm; Static vs Dynamic Types; and her goal of showing Functional Reactive Programming as a good way to do game development.
