Functional Programming with Folktale

In this video, Jason Choe talks gives a brief intro to Folktale, Fantasy-Land (which Folktale was based upon), and goes over some of the pros and cons of functional programming. He goes on to introduce one of the core concepts of functional programming: composition.

For the remainder of the talk, he dives into Tasks (one of the several libraries that Folktale includes), by going into an example that compares one use of a Task in comparison to a promise. He wraps it up by mentioning some of the other libraries and benefits that Folktale provides.
