Look inside

Functional Programming in C++ teaches developers the practical side of functional programming and the tools that C++ provides to develop software in the functional style. This in-depth guide is full of useful diagrams that help you understand FP concepts and begin to think functionally.

about the technology

Well-written code is easier to test and reuse, simpler to parallelize, and less error prone. Mastering the functional style of programming can help you tackle the demands of modern apps and will lead to simpler expression of complex program logic, graceful error handling, and elegant concurrency. C++ supports FP with templates, lambdas, and other core language features, along with many parts of the STL.

about the book

Functional Programming in C++ helps you unleash the functional side of your brain, as you gain a powerful new perspective on C++ coding. You’ll discover dozens of examples, diagrams, and illustrations that break down the functional concepts you can apply in C++, including lazy evaluation, function objects and invokables, algebraic data types, and more. As you read, you’ll match FP techniques with practical scenarios where they offer the most benefit.

what's inside

  • Writing safer code with no performance penalties
  • Explicitly handling errors through the type system
  • Extending C++ with new control structures
  • Composing tasks with DSLs

Sumant Tambe, LinkedIn

An excellent read. Comprehensive code examples illustrate the implementation of functional programming patterns using C++14/C++17 constructs.

Keerthi Shetty, FactSet Research Systems

Provides elegant, easy-to-grasp, ready-to-use examples that will improve the way you think about coding.

Nikos Athanasiou, BETA CAE Systems

Presents a new way of writing quality software and a new way of thinking.

Gian Lorenzo, Meocci, CommProve

Particularly valuable for intermediate/advanced C++ developers who want to embrace reactive-style programming.

Marco Massenzio, Apple
