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.

Section 3
Partial Application
We will start with a comparison between currying and partial application. We will then implement partial application in JavaScript. After the implementation, we will revisit the bind function of JavaScript for the purpose of partially applying arguments of a function. We will conclude this video with writing a partially applied map function. - Understand partial application and compare it to currying - Implement partial application and currying with and without the JavaScript bind function - Implement a partially applied map function
