Abstract

There has been much hype around Functional Programming in recent years. However, Functional Programming is not a new idea and indeed goes right back to the 1950s and the programming language LISP. However, many people are not clear as to what Functional Programming is and instead jump into code examples and never really understand some of the key ideas associated with Functional Programming such as Referential Transparency.
