The objectives of the seminar are to shed a light on the premises of FP and give you a basic understanding of the pillars of FP so that you would feel enlightened at the end of the session. When you walk away from the seminar you should feel an inner light about the new way of programming and an urge & motivation to code like you never before did!
Functional programming should not be confused with imperative (or procedural) programming. Neither it is like object oriented programming. It is something different. Not radically so, since the concepts that we will be exploring are familiar programming concepts, just expressed in a different way. The philosophy behind how these concepts are applied to solving problems are also a little different. We shall learn and talk about essentially the fundamental elements of Functional Programming.
