Functional programming is really a very simple concept: to program with functions that always return the same result for the same arguments (= pure functions). You have surely written some such functions in Perl already. This talk will show how you can increase the amount of code written using pure functions, and why this can be beneficial. It also introduces you to the functional-perl.org project which provides libraries to help working in this style, and will touch on functional idioms in Perl 6.
