Functional programming is becoming more popular, even in non-functional programming languages. This observation can be seen as approved after even Java added functional paradigms in the form of lambda expressions. This lightning talk will highlight the role of functional programming PHP, which similarities FP and Lego have and why loops are (almost?) obsolete in a functional programming world.
The popularity of functional programming is without doubt, even in non-functional languages. It's rise is underpinned by Java, which now also includes functional paradigms in the language's core. This talk is perfect for people who never used map, reduce or filter, or for those who don't know a bit about the mentioned functions.
