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:

- operator sections
- currying and composition
- monads
- continuations

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