In this talk, Russ Miles will show how making simplicity a priority can lead to easier to maintain solutions, even when approached using unfamiliar languages. How each concept that is often thought of as 'only for the functional crowd', or just plain misunderstood, is in fact simply and, eventually, easily implemented using your favourite language of choice once you've donned the right thinking caps.
