Did I Mention…

My functional programming book is now on sale?

Functional programming is where it’s at. But different languages emphasize different approaches to functional programming. Some bolt functional capabilities onto an existing framework, some are built to be functional from the ground up. What would be nice is a book that explores functional thinking and functional style and idioms across different languages.

My book does that, through articles drawn from PragPub magazine. Led by expert guides, you’ll discover the distinct strengths and approaches of Clojure, Elixir, Haskell, Scala, and Swift and learn which best suits your needs.

Get it here.
