Functional Python

Level: All

How functional is Python? Is functional programming even applicable with the idea of writing Pythonic code, or the Zen of Python? These things have been on my mind lately, since I have switched from Clojure to writing full time Python code.

I will share my thoughts and ideas on how to find a possible way to be both Pythonic, and Functional. I will demo how to get super fast feedback loops during development by using a thing called REPL Driven Development, keeping it Pythonic while adding functional patterns like Railway Oriented Programming, and demo some really cool Python specific tools such as the toolz library.
