What Puzzles You Most About Functional Programming?
With so much diversity, it’s hard to define the exact scope of what exactly functional programming is. Is it a question of how to design your program, that is, using functions as the primary abstraction? Or is it about programming with mathematical functions, meaning pure functions that do not have side effects? And what are those monads again?
Why Are You Not Using Functional Languages?
Functional programming promises many benefits - but its adoption in the industry and the enterprise has been slow. What are the big obstacles to the adoption of functional programming?
