Publisher's Summary

Functional Programming in Scala is a serious tutorial for programmers looking to learn FP and apply it to the everyday business of coding. The audiobook guides listeners from basic techniques to advanced topics in a logical, concise, and clear progression. In it, you'll find concrete examples and exercises that open up the world of functional programming.  

Functional programming (FP) is a style of software development emphasizing functions that don't depend on program state. Functional code is easier to test and reuse, simpler to parallelize, and less prone to bugs than other code. Scala is an emerging JVM language that offers strong support for FP. Its familiar syntax and transparent interoperability with Java make Scala a great place to start learning FP.  

This audiobook assumes no prior experience with functional programming. Some prior exposure to Scala or Java is helpful.   

What's inside:

  • Functional programming concepts 
  • The whys and hows of FP 
  • How to write multicore programs 
  • Checks for understanding  

Paul Chiusano and Rúnar Bjarnason are recognized experts in functional programming with Scala and are core contributors to the Scalaz library.
