Functional programming concepts aren't that hard but sometimes a little abstract. In this post I'll try to demystify the concept of currying, or - in simple words - partial function application. If you wonder where the name "curry" comes from, it's named after Haskell Curry, one of the creative minds behind functional programming, and indeed as the name implies it adds quite some spicy taste to functional programming. To be completely honest, currying wasn't originally invented by Haskell Curry; Haskell himself attributed the technique to Schönfinkel although another mathematician Frege was using it also at that time (in the pre-internet era, it wasn't so uncommon for different people to have the same idea independently from each other without knowing each other's work in real-time).
