The multi-core scalability issue is being widely discussed these days, and one solution that is regularly proposed involves the application of patterns from functional programming. One of the paradigms of FP is the immutability of data, which is what makes it appealing when it comes to concurrency. In this session, Oliver uses a practical example to show concurrency in action, based on immutable data and other functional approaches.
