Eric Normand is an experienced teacher and functional programmer. His interest in Functional Programming began in 2001 when he was first introduced to Lisp. He has a deep knowledge of programming language design, software design, and functional programming techniques, supplementing 7 years of professional functional programming experience.
He also has significant teaching experience. He taught math for two years in rural West Africa. He runs a quarterly Clojure workshop in New Orleans, has written about Lisp and Clojure for over ten years, and teaches Clojure online in video form. He has spoken at conferences and is a thought leader in the Clojure community. He has written the PurelyFunctional.tv Newsletter (formerly the Clojure Gazette), a weekly mix of inspiring links and opinion, for nearly five years.
Eric’s unique teaching style is based on practical examples and metaphors that make difficult concepts easy to grasp. He loves getting quickly into actual practice, group work, and presentations to cement learning.
