Functional programming is a way of thinking about programs that emphasizes functions, while avoiding state mutation. C# includes a number of functional features and libraries, enabling us to take advantage of these benefits.
Functional Programming in C# teaches readers to apply functional thinking to real-world scenarios. They'll start by learning the principles of functional programming, and how they translate in the C# language. By the end of this book, readers will be able to integrate functional techniques, making their C# programs robust and maintainable, and helping them to become more well rounded developers.
* Introduction to functional programming
* Real-world examples
* Integrate functional techniques
* Become a well rounded developer
This book is designed to help C# programmers with an OOP background understand functional thinking.
About the Technology:
Functional programming is a way of thinking about programs that emphasizes functions, while avoiding state mutation. It allows us to write elegant, intention-revealing code, that shines in testability and support for concurrency.
