Keynote: The Joy of Functional Programming

Venkat Subramaniam

It's been around for a long time, but everyone's talking about it all of a sudden. But why and why now? We've been programming in languages like Java for a while, quite well. Now we're asked to change and the languages themselves are changing towards this style of programming.
