In reply to: A practical introduction to functional programming

Ignore all that. Functional code is characterised by one thing: the absence of side effects. It doesn’t rely on data outside the current function, and it doesn’t change data that exists outside the current function. Every other functional” thing can be derived from this property. Use it as a guide rope as you learn.
