You can find more information on the speaker's site:

The Perl language supports many different programming styles. While procedural and object-oriented are generally the most common, complementing these with code written in the functional style can bring many advantages.
This talk introduces functional programming - no prior knowledge is required - and shows how functional concepts can be used to make your code easier to maintain, by simplifying complex algorithms and separating control flow from implementation.
