Functional programming, explained to my grandmother

Functional programming may remind you of your old school memories. You have no idea what a monad is, and you think that a “first-order function” is an insult.

I will introduce the main concepts of functional programming to you, without cruelty or big words, and you will be able to apply them directly using the language of your choice.
