The concepts of functional programming are spreading to mainstream languages. Jeremy explores functional programming in Python.

All mainstream languages (like Python, Java and C++) are incorporating functional constructs. So even if you aren’t going to be using Haskell regularly, you can still develop your code in a more functional way in other languages.
