“In my time, functional languages have become more mainstream, and mainstream languages have had functional features added. It’s now wise for programmers to learn what the functional style is.

In this talk, I’ll describe which parts I think are important, which are over-hyped, and which are best left alone for now. I’ll also talk about how you, the individual programmer, can efficiently learn functional programming.”
