Brian Beckman: Don't fear the Monad
Avg Rating: 5
(11)Functional programming is increasing in popularity these days given the inherent problems with shared mutable state that is rife in the imperative world. As we march on to a world of multi and manycore chipsets, software engineering must evolve to better equip software engineers with the tools to…

Avg Rating: 5
(17)Erik Meijer and team (developer Wes Dyer, in particular) have created a profound and beautiful .NET library that will take managed event based programming to new levels. Of course, many of you wish that you could write LINQ expressions over events. Well, now you can thanks to Erik's and Wes Dyer's… 
C9 Lectures: Dr. Ralf Lämmel  The Quick Essence of Functional Programming
Avg Rating: 5
(10)We had to cover monads eventually, and there are many great monad tutorials out there (see, for example, here: http://www.haskell.org/haskellwiki/Tutorials#Using_monads). In fact, there are web resources concerned solely with organizing the many monad tutorials available in the wild, and developing…
