Functional programming is one of the most mind-bending and counter-intuitive topics for most PHP developers. While almost every developer knows what a PHP function is, that's just the first part of the power that is functional programming. By harnessing the power of higher-order functions, we can write clearer, more accessible, and maintainable code. Applicable in PHP, JavaScript, and beyond, fewer loops will make you love programming more than ever before.

Really good talk David! This talk was very insightful into using alternatives to loops. I liked the technical examples and simple examples on how to use the topics covered. Highly recommended and well presented.

Great introduction to functional programming! Glad David covered pure functions and the use of maps and filters. This talk also covered the awesome power of Laravel collection functions and how we can leverage functional programming with them.
