Over the last 10 years functional programming has become very popular and mainstream.
Many of it's ideas are influencing developers in other programming paradigms like object oriented programming.
It would also be interesting to hear how participants have been introduced into FP when coming from OOP, or if maybe they actually started out with FP and then became OOP developers.
Great topic @Vinai !
Are you thinking on discussion more on concepts or languages in particular?
I'm due to read this book https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/15752713-functional-programming-for-the-object-oriented-programm... which was recommended by Uncle Bob at some point.
You have my kudos!
