O'Reilly-Functional Thinking: Functional Programming using Java, Clojure and Scala
Author : Neal Ford | Duration : 3 hours 58 minutes | Language : English | 2.08GB
this is a video of the famous software architect Neal Ford will go from writing imperative programs in Java to create functional programs on Java, Clojure and Scala. Rather than focus on the features of the language, this course examines common practice in OOP languages, and then shows how to solve similar tasks using functional languages. For example, do you know how to achieve code reuse in Java through inheritance and polymorphism.
The same can be achieved in a functional language, using higher-order functions, composition and multiple dispatch.
Learning the syntax of A new Language is Easy, But learning to think Under A Different paradigm is Difficult.
This video from renowned software Architect Neal Ford Helps you Transition from A-Java programmer writing Imperative to A Functional programmer, using Java, Clojure and Scala as examples. Rather than focus on specific features Language, Functional Thinking looks at A Variety of Practices in common OOP languages and then shows you how to solve the same problems using a functional language.
For instance, you know how to achieve code-reuse in Java via mechanisms such as inheritance and polymorphism. Code Reuse is Also Possible in Functional Languages, using High-order functions, composition, and multi-Methods.
Ford Encourages you to value results over steps, so you CAN begin to think like A Functional programmer. Expect your mind to be bent, but you'll finish with a much better understanding of both the syntax and semantics of functional languages. This video is ideal for any experienced programmer.
