Any developer that’s moved from an object-oriented language to a functional one knows how disconcerting the shift can be. It demands a completely different mindset.


In this episode, our regular co-hosts Neal Ford and Alexey Bôas talk to Gregorio Melo about functional programming. He’s just written a book about functional programming, using Clojure as its basis. Together they explore why developers choose to learn functional languages and how they can make the learning curve less daunting.
