No Silver Bullets in Functional Programming

We are constantly presented with trade-offs when writing software. What are the trade-offs when applying functional programming? What costs arise? When is it not worth doing? When should pragmatism kick in and when should we start using side-effects?

This talk will give you some tools to be able to answer the above questions for both functional programming and types. The tools have been refined over many professional years of both doing and not doing purely functional programming.
