Functional Reactive Programming @ YouTube

LoneStarRuby Conf 2013 – Functional Reactive Programming with Frappuccino

Functional reactive programming (FRP) is a programming paradigm for reactive programming using the building blocks of functional programming.

I haven’t heard the word FRP before, but the concept sounds interesting. The data is manipulated based on the events rather than procedural updates of variables. The data can flow like the way Excel functions works.

Maybe, along with the surge of JavaScripts, reactive (or event-driven) programming paradigm is getting popular. AngularJS’s double-binding is pretty much declarative data definitions, though it may not be the functional one under the hood.

The world might be getting towards the functional one.
