Functional programming and the FARM workshop

Functional programming techniques, where functions are passed around as values forming “higher-order” structures, has traditionally been seen as a fringe activity. It has become increasingly popular amongst programmers in the past few years though, and is commonplace amongst live coders. For example the extempore, fluxus,
