Get Func-y: Understanding Delegates in .NET

Delegates are the gateway to functional programming. So let's understand delegates and how we can change the way we program by using functions as parameters, return types, variables, and properties. In addition, we'll see how the built in delegate types, Func and Action, are waiting to make our lives easier. By the time we're done, we'll see how delegates can add elegance, extensibility, and safety to our programming. And as a bonus, you'll have a few functional programming concepts to take with you.
