Is there any reason to believe FP is the "new hotness". Each year in the Stack overflow language trends report the FP languages are barely making an impact.

FP languages are not that big. FP architecture and practices are very popular. React, Immutability and more have become mainstream.

A recent example is SwiftUI. While Swift is not a FP language, SwiftUI (FP UI framework) and Combine (a FP toolkit) is being pushed by Apple as the future UI architecture for all its OSes.

It's the new hotness if you measure hotness by the amount of Medium posts written about it.
