Deep Dive into Functional JavaScript [Video]

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 1
Recursive and Iterative Solutions in JavaScript
You will learn what recursion is in mathematics and in software development. You will also find out about different types of recursion. At the end of this section, we will see how to transfer iterative solutions to recursive solutions using accumulator variables. - Understand what recursion is from a mathematical point of view and in software development - Identify the different types of recursion - Understand how to traverse between recursive and iterative solutions using accumulator variables
