The Best OO Language is a Functional One
YOW! Singapore 2017
Object oriented development turns 50 this year. During that time, hundreds of OO languages have come and gone. And yet, with the exception of Smalltalk and a few research languages, none of them were actually object-oriented.
I think we might now be seeing a revival of the spirit of OO, but it is coming from the functional world. I want to show you how to write OO in Elixir, and how liberating this can be.
