Why learning functional programming is a good idea even if you are happy with language of your choice

A session at Rubyslava / PyVo #42 - Beyond Comfort Zone Edition

  • My experience with the switch from mainstream OO language to barely used FP language
  • Why it was difficult, main 'blockers'
  • Retrospective after 2 years of programming almost exclusively in Clojure, real-life lessons
  • And the most important point, why i wouldn't 'go back'
