When can (or should) I use a functional language?

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • I'd like to to propose an open discussion on this topic. I've heard this question raised often, both by those who are contemplating learning a functional language, and by those who already have the skills but are still apprehensive about the appropriate way to apply them.

    - Are functional languages suitable for general purpose programming, or only specific use cases?

    - What projects would benefit the most from a functional language?

    - Can I introduce a functional language into an existing project?

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
