A good introduction to FP so far

By Austin D. Davis - Apr 23 2019
Read more
Coming from an imperative/OOP background in JavaScript and C++, I always found function programming to be completely foreign, both in its paradigm and its terminology. This podcast has helped me bridge some of the gaps in my mind. To be honest, I had to do a lot of reading and watching videos about basic category/type theory in order to really understand what was going on. I’m not sure there is any way around that. It’s difficult to approach if you don’t have a strong foundation in math. However, Eric does a good job of explaining some fundamental concepts in a way I could easily comprehend. Listen to this if you want to bridge your gap knowledge gap and step into the world of FP.
