You can find more information on the speaker's site:


Yes, functional programming is useful in Perl already but it isn't always pretty. I'll show a selection of techniques from FP languages, and also ways to make them pretty and Perlish. Including:

- lazy lists
- currying
- monads
- list comprehensions
- pattern matching
- functional IO

We'll use some shiny new Perl toys (like Devel::Declare) to help us get convenient syntax for these techniques.
