"functional" is a word that gets thrown around a lot, especially in frontend web circles. problem is, functional programming seems completely unapproachable; it requires you to dedicate lots of time to understanding the math behind category theory, set theory, and discrete mathematics. right?
what if i told you i could give you three useful, functional-style fundamentals that you could grok quickly, understand intuitively, and use productively?
join me as we learn about higher-order functions, functional composition, and strategies for blending object-oriented and functional code to make an elegant, well-constructed whole.

Learning Outcomes:
  • learn more about functional programming
  • streamline the process of writing your object-oriented code with functional techniques
  • learn functional strategies to implement features and write code in a stateless manner
