What you'll learn
- Functional programming techniques you can apply right now.
- Concepts that define a functional programming approach.
- To create pure functions that avoid mutations and side effects.
- Declarative programming.
The functional programming paradigm was difficult, at first, for me to grasp and implement. Therefore, I wanted to create a course that would help others make the leap and begin applying functional programming techniques into their own code. In this course you will learn techniques that you can apply today. But remember, you don't need to implement everything immediately. Implement those things that make sense and grow into it slowly.
In this course I have taken the approach of dissecting a definition of functional programming and using that definition as the structure of the course. We will break it down into pieces. Focus on those pieces and the techniques you can use right away. Each new concept will build on the previous concepts. And in the end you will see all the concepts come together.
Who this course is for:
I was the co-owner and President of Rapid Intake, an eLearning firm. The company was an ideal place for me to apply my training and development skills. While there I managed all development and professional service related activities. I was heavily involved in the initial development of Rapid Intake's main product, an eLearning authoring tool, which eventually lead to Rapid Intake's acquisition in 2011 by Callidus Software.
