Programming functionally in "mainstream"­ languages

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • Steve McConnell advised developers to program "into" the language they are using (not "in" the language). To what extent can idioms and design patterns from functional programming help us write better code in the languages most typically encountered in commercial development (like Java, C#, JavaScript, PHP, etc)?

    This would definitely be of interest to me. I think concepts such as immutability and control of side effects can be very helpful in imperative/OO languages - I'd be interested to hear what other people think.
