Learn Functional Programming

After completing a ridiculous amount of research over the past couple of month, I presented on functional programming early last week.  Even though I’ve playing with F# quite a bit lately, I didn’t focus on any specific functional or multi-paradigm language.  Instead my presentation included an overview of functional programming in general.

Update 4/28/2009: I’ve posted my slide deck.  Check out Part 1 of the Functional Programming Series.

I compiled a good number of references during my research. If you are interested in learning more about functional programming, I suggest you consult any of the references below. Or you may just wish to wait for me to publish my slide deck.
