If you've ever tried to learn functional programming, and walked away with a headache or a sense that you're not smart enough to do it… you're not alone.
I've been there. Dozens of times. I've tried, and tried again, and continued to try to learn functional programming.
And while I have picked up a few tips here and there, and improved my code as a result, I've never had a real, solid grasp on how functional programming works and solves the problems it claims to solve.
But no more.
With this first webinar in a 3 part series, Chet Harrison and I will take functional programming out of the academic, computer science world and bring to you in a gentle and easy to understand manner.
In this first episode, you'll learn the basics of why functional programming, what it is, where it came from and what the core of it is. You'll see function composition, function purity, currying, higher order functions, first-class functions and so much more.
Join Chet and Derick in this webinar recording, and learn just how powerful – and simple – functional programming is.
