Functional programming provides a lot of power in a little bit of code: they are a fundamental change in the way problems are thought about, just as object-oriented languages were before them. So how does this impressive new technical paradigm fit with the impressive new technical paradigm of Agile development? What practical consequences are there for adopting Agile development methods outside of the object-oriented realm? I don't have all the answers for these questions, but I've got some choice thoughts: anyone with some ideas is welcome to discuss.
