@jdubray I see a lot interest in FP lately (mostly in the backend) because inmutability can help to write parallel code that is easier to understand, you don't need to deal with Threads and locks like in java for example. I am curious if you know other alternatives to FP, maybe TLA can help too ??
Also FP code tends to be more declarative and focused on data flow/data transformations instead of OOP code concerned on control flow. I am finding FP code much easier to understand. I think you can write declarative code in both FP & OOP, but is more common in FP.
