Functional Code is Simple

Reason #7 to Learn Functional Programming

In the Clojure world, the concept of "simplicity" has an objective meaning. We have taken to agree with the research done by Rich Hickey and his powers of presentation. In Simple Made Easy, Rich Hickey presents a definition of simplicity that deals with how intertwined things are. It's not about "ease".

That definition is what I mean. But the concept applies to the broader functional programming world as well.

You should learn functional programming. I'll give you many reasons, but this is just one. Reason #7 is that functional code is simple.
