re: Why is functional programming gaining popularity? VIEW POST


Some developers like to geek out on hard-looking FP concepts and then follow up with a talk describing what they learned (or think they learned).

This creates the appearance that the presenter is smart and therefore FP must be useful.

Having said that, I am intrigued by FP (I've been doing FP with Scala for almost 2 years) and I find it hard but addictive. I do believe FP is valuable and I want to know more!
