We should definitely look forward to new ideas in functional programming. At the same time we should make sure we have a solid understanding of the basics. With this talk I want to introduce the audience to the most important concepts in functional programming and why they are making programming easier. I’ll be showing examples in several languages (Clojure, Haskell, Java8) to illustrate: referential transparency, side effects, immutable and peristent data structures, laziness, memoization, currying, composition, list comprehensions, recursion and more. Interruptions are welcome, bring your secret questions, I’ll be happy to answer.
