In which area (gaming, web development, app development, etc) do you see functional programming…

None. I think that FP will be mixed with OOP. So more than taking over I see contamination.

There are industries which are experiencing a FP hype, like finance. There are web development frameworks in almost any known language, FP styled included. Javascript can be used as a functional programming language.

The fact is, even though FP can solve any problem Imperative programming solves, FP solves certain problem better and other worse than IP so replacing the latter with the former would only change the nature of the problems, not solving them all.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
