NewsFunctional programming in PHP Pin

PHP is not a “real” or “pure” functional language. Far from it. We don’t have a proper type system, the cool kids make fun of our exotic syntax for closures and we have array_walk() that looks functional but allows altering state. Nevertheless, there are a few interesting building blocks for functional programming.
Eventually I'm going to convice you guys that PHP is still cool.
