Functional programming. I got the how but I never understood the why.

I took a free FP course on edx.org that taught me some Haskell and it Al clicked.

Unfortunately, I am forever doomed as I have a hard time going back to non-fp.

 

Same. Though, learned functional programming with Lisp, which I am sure makes me worse than even I can comprehend.

 
 

Same here. Functional Programming was very frustrating for me wondering all that's side effects and pure functions etc.

Right now it's something I can't really seem to abandon.

All thanks to a strict frontend development library called Hyperapp. It enforces FP in JavaScript.

I'm still looking towards learning more as I still have alot of cool things in FP I haven't learned.

Same. A co-worker introduced me to F# a few years ago. I thought it was a bunch of baloney.

Then PF started to click. C# is too...verbose for my taste.

I'm forever cursed.
