Functional Thinking: Paradigm Over Syntax

Buy

If you’re familiar with functional programming basics and want to gain a much deeper understanding, this in-depth guide takes you beyond syntax and demonstrates how you need to think in a new way. Software architect Neal Ford shows intermediate to advanced developers how functional coding allows you to step back a level of abstraction so you can see your programming problem with greater clarity.

Each chapter shows you various examples of functional thinking, using numerous code examples from Java 8 and other JVM languages that include functional capabilities. This book may bend your mind, but you’ll come away with a much better grasp of functional programming concepts.

  • Understand why many imperative languages are adding functional capabilities
  • Compare functional and imperative solutions to common problems
  • Examine ways to cede control of routine chores to the runtime
  • Learn how memoization and laziness eliminate hand-crafted solutions
  • Explore functional approaches to design patterns and code reuse
  • View real-world examples of functional thinking with Java 8, and in functional architectures and web frameworks
  • Learn the pros and cons of living in a paradigmatically richer world

If you’re new to functional programming, check out Josh Backfield’s book Becoming Functional.

The Debugger's Handbook
The Debugger's Handbook

Focused on the best practices for writing code as well as on the methods to perform more effective debugging, The Debugger's Handbook promotes a natural debugging approach to writing code. The author begins by examining and concretely defining just what a bug is, what circumstances are more prone to producing bugs, and how to avoid them from the...


Architecture of a Database System
Architecture of a Database System
Database Management Systems (DBMSs) are a ubiquitous and critical component of modern computing, and the result of decades of research and development in both academia and industry. Architecture of a Database System presents an architectural discussion of DBMS design principles, including process models, parallel architecture, storage system...
Theory of Finite Automata With an Introduction to Formal Languages
Theory of Finite Automata With an Introduction to Formal Languages
It often seems that mathematicians regularly provide answers well before the rest of the world finds reasons to ask the questions. The operation of the networks of relays used in the first computers is exactly described by Boolean functions. George Boole thereby made his contribution to computer science in the mid-1800s, and Boolean algebra is used...
Language Implementation Patterns: Create Your Own Domain-Specific and General Programming Languages
Language Implementation Patterns: Create Your Own Domain-Specific and General Programming Languages
Knowing how to create domain-specific languages (DSLs) can give you a huge productivity boost. Instead of writing code in a general-purpose programming language, you can first build a custom language tailored to make you efficient in a particular domain.

The key is understanding the common patterns found across language
