Functional Programming starts out by looking at first-class function objects, immutable lists and structural recursion. From there, the lesson generalizes to higher-order functions such as map, filter and fold, and has fun with some “functional gymnastics” using a technique called currying.  Finally, the lesson revisits the calculator again, which really demonstrates how using these techniques can save developers time and energy resulting in much more elegant, readable and bulletproof code.
