What is functional programming, and why should you care? Functional programming at its core is programming without side-effects. It is a powerful coding paradigm that makes programs easier to reason about. It provides many benefits, including easier parallelization and memoization, and encourages null-safe programming. Functional programming does not have to be restricted to only be used in functional languages: the concepts and benefits can be applied to any system. In this talk, I will present a high-level overview of functional programming suitable for beginners. I will cover key ideas that make functional programming shine, discuss the pros and cons of functional programming, and share ways to apply functional programming concepts to our daily coding or imperative language of choice.
