Maybe I have it: use the functions -1+, positive?, 1+ with map, filter, and map.

True. In Python you always pass the current object as an extra argument anyway.

What about the self argument of methods? Can you simulate this with a dictionary containing functions?

comment How to avoid context switching while developing full stack web apps?
"Also if you had all the requirement specifications, it would be easier to develop both parts separately, but of course you are talking about agile development." +1

comment What are the disadvantages of test-first programming?
Very good answer (+1): I confront items 2 and 3 in your list very often. Especially when you are experimenting with new code and the architecture is far from clear, unit tests are just a burden and do not help to focus on the problem. They are OK as long as the solution is clear and you only have to work out the details.

comment Looking for advice on moving to a more Agile approach for development
"Change is hard for most of us.": Very true. This is why you have to provide very good reasons to convince people that things are going to work much better after the change.

comment What is a “side effect?”
To be more precise, pure functional languages clearly separate side-effect free code from other code, whereas other languages have no mechanism to distinguish between pure and impure code. Most programs need to have side-effects to be of any use.
