A Preliminary Survey on Functional Programming. Caitlin Sadowski and Daan Leijen

Functional programming has had a profound impact on the development of mainstream languages such as C# or Java. We wanted to get a better sense of developer’s perceptions of functional programming, and also better understand which functional programming concepts are useful to developers. This paper reports the results of a preliminary survey on this topic.

The survey was sent to 100 programmers working at Microsoft, 19 responded, and of these only 14 were familiar with the term functional programming.

I will refrain from snarky remarks.
