Course Description

Functional programming is a programming paradigm that emphasizes on the use of functions to create programs. It is a powerful tool for developing complex applications, and it is becoming increasingly popular among developers. JavaScript, which is one of the most popular programming languages in the world, is a language that supports functional programming. In this course, students will learn how to apply functional programming concepts and techniques in JavaScript. The course is designed for students who are familiar with JavaScript, but have little or no experience with functional programming. The course begins with an introduction to functional programming, covering concepts such as immutability, higher-order functions, and recursion. Students will learn how to use functions as first-class objects, and how to create and manipulate functions using JavaScript’s built-in features. The course will then cover topics such as currying, partial application, and composition. Students will learn how to create more complex functions by combining simpler functions, and how to use higher-order functions to create more abstract and reusable code. The course will also cover functional data structures such as lists, trees, and maps, and how to manipulate them using functional programming techniques. Students will learn how to use functional programming concepts to create more efficient and elegant code, and how to avoid common programming pitfalls. Throughout the course, students will work on a series of programming assignments, which will allow them to apply the concepts and techniques learned in class to real-world problems. Students will also have access to a variety of resources, including lecture videos, readings, and code examples. By the end of the course, students will have a solid understanding of functional programming concepts and techniques, and how to apply them in JavaScript. They will be able to write more efficient and elegant code, and be well-prepared to tackle more complex programming challenges. This course is an excellent choice for anyone looking to improve their JavaScript skills, or anyone interested in functional programming. Author: Mattias Petter Johansson «Fun Fun Function» (YouTube)
