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.

Converting an Array of Nodes to a Tree
This practical exercise will make you think out of the box a bit for understanding how advanced reduce functions can be implemented. We will use the reduce function to create a tree data structure from an array of nodes. - Learn the definition of binary trees and node lists - Reduce the node list to a tree - Test the solution by running the code and comparing it to the expected result
