The hardest thing about functional programming is learning how to think like a functional programmer. Simple questions can lead to very general answers, but it's not always obvious how to get from here to there.

In this talk, you will start with a simple design problem and follow the types, think about composition, abstract away what's irrelevant, and arrive at a solution to many problems. With some luck you'll also gain a bit of intuition about how functional programmers think.
