Functional Programming Resources

Post #: 1
As mentioned, I'll bring my copy of the Little Schemer next week. You can probably snag a copy from the Toronto Public Library if you like. It's pretty good introductory material for functional programming with the typical Schemer's emphasis on recursion (if you're one of those people that believe that real functional programming involves Hindley-Milner, the Little ML'er may be more your style, but I don't own a copy).

If you're looking for online resources, check out the classic SICP. You might also get mileage out of Learn You a Haskell (basically, this is Why's Poignant Guide to Haskell, except it's written by Miran Lipovańća), and/or Practical Common Lisp (this is more of an introductory text to Common Lisp, rather than functional programming, but may still be worth your time if you've never seen a Lisp before coming to the Dojo)
