Stylish JavaScript with pointfree style

It's no news that functional programming principles are ubiquitous in modern JavaScript libraries and tools. Libraries such as React, Redux or RxJS require developers to write pure functions and ensure immutability. Since we're doing functional programming so often anyway, why not take advantage of its best practices?
During my talk, you will learn how to make your code even better by following the pointfree style (also known as tacit style). It's a functional pattern which encourages creating small, modular and composable functions. The talk will contain practical, real-life based examples of how to apply this style when writing RxJS and Redux code using Ramda and Lodash. You will also see why it's not a silver bullet and when not to use it.
