Beginning Functional JavaScript

Functional Programming with JavaScript Using EcmaScript 6

Book Description:

Learn functional programming concepts using JavaScript ES6. You will learn concepts such as currying, partial functions, higher-order functions, and monads.

Programming languages have evolved from focusing on procedures to objects and now on function. JavaScript supports functional programming and allows developers to write well-crafted code.

What You Will Learn:

  • Master functional programming concepts
  • Identify how functions are treated in JavaScript
  • Understand real-world functional libraries and create a functional library that mimics underscore.js
  • Perform pure-error handling techniques such as functors and monads
  • Discover ES6 functional features such as spread operators and generators

Who This Book Is For:

JavaScript developers (or beginners) who want to understand functional programming concepts and the functional nature of the language.
