Howdy, everyone! မင်္ဂလာပါ။
My bad for the belated intro, I didn’t know this thread existed. This is Saw Thinkar, a junior dev greeting from Yangon, Myanmar.
Two years ago, I was first introduced to functional programming in Assembly Language class where my professor instructed us to write simple programs in x86 assembly, C, and Standard ML, and lab reports were to be written in Tex. Then again in Discrete Structure class, by the same professor, we had to write proofs in Standard ML.
At that time, my classmates and I felt pretty overwhelmed since there were so many things we had to absorb in short time, and I didn’t know how it would be useful.
Six months ago, I met a friend who is also the founder of my current work, introduced me to Elixir. He was like Elixir is a functional programming language, and I was like the only functional programming I knew is SML. I also got in touch with my professor via LinkedIn and I am glad I could tell him how his classes were big deals.
Here are links to my lab repos in case if you find interesting: CS118-AssemblyLanguage, CS113-DiscreteStructure Note: Those reports are not polished, and were in rush for submission.
