NCDevCon 2017 Session-A Gentle Introduction to Functional JavaScript

A Gentle Introduction to Functional JavaScript

Functional Programming is available in many programming languages today. You probably know that FP is possible in JavaScript - but did you know that writing FP style JavaScript will lead to cleaner, more maintainable code? In this session, we'll explore writing FP style JavaScript and cover the basics, and intermediate techniques. We'll do a functional refactor and explain the reasoning along the way. We'll use mostly basic JavaScript and the underscore library for code examples to demonstrate Functional Programming in a simple to understand, and more practical, way.
