Deep Dive into Functional JavaScript [Video]

By: Zsolt Nagy

Overview of this book

In this course, you will have an in-depth overview and the tools in your utility belt to write maintainable code in JavaScript. We will stick to the latest version of JavaScript in this course, ES2017. You don't have to know ES2017 to benefit from the course, as we will introduce the language constructs that we use during it. You will experience the benefits of functional programming even if your code is not purely functional. In this course, you will learn the building blocks that act as a utility belt in your arsenal, enabling you to write code that's easy to understand, extend, test, and debug. You will get hands-on practice on how to use currying, partial evaluation, map, reduce, filter, recursion, and other functional programming concepts in ES6.

Getting Started with ES6
ES6/ES2015 is introduced from a functional perspective, so that we can build on these fundamentals to write clear, compact functional code. - Learn the basics of writing code in ES6: block scope, constants, strict mode, types, object shorthand notation, and template literals - Master the arrow function syntax of ES6 to understand functional programming better - Learn additional syntactic sugar to process complex data structures: destructuring, spread operator, and rest parameters
