Look inside
Functional Programming in Kotlin is a reworked version of the bestselling Functional Programming in Scala, with all code samples, instructions, and exercises translated into the powerful Kotlin language. In this authoritative guide, you’ll take on the challenge of learning functional programming from first principles, and start writing Kotlin code that’s easier to read, easier to reuse, better for concurrency, and less prone to bugs and errors.

about the technology

Kotlin is a new JVM language designed to interoperate with Java and offer an improved developer experience for creating new applications. It’s already a top choice for writing web services, and Android apps. Although it preserves Java’s OO roots, Kotlin really shines when you adopt a functional programming mindset. By learning the core principles and practices of functional programming outlined in this book, you’ll start writing code that’s easier to read, easier to test and reuse, better for concurrency, and less prone to bugs.

about the book

Functional Programming in Kotlin is a serious tutorial for programmers looking to learn FP and apply it to the everyday business of coding. Based on the bestselling Functional Programming in Scala, this book guides intermediate Java and Kotlin programmers from basic techniques to advanced topics in a logical, concise, and clear progression. In it, you'll find concrete examples and exercises that open up the world of functional programming. The book will deliver practical mastery of FP using Kotlin and a valuable perspective on program design that you can apply to other languages.

about the reader

For intermediate Kotlin and Java developers. No experience with functional programming is required.

about the author

Marco Vermeulen has almost two decades of programming experience on the JVM, with much of that time spent on functional programming using Scala and Kotlin.

Rúnar Bjarnason and Paul Chiusano are the authors of Functional Programming in Scala, on which this book is based. They are internationally-recognized experts in functional programming and the Scala programming language.

I was unable to find a resource other than this book that gathers these topics in a both concise and complete text.

Pedro Arthur Pinheiro Rosa Duarte

Ideal for a Kotlin developer coming to the language with a Java / OO background, looking to gain a deeper understanding of FP and how it can be implemented in Kotlin.

Robert Taylor

A great introduction to functional programming and to Kotlin.

William Rudenmalm

One of best books I have read about the concepts and techniques of functional programming with my favorite programming language Kotlin.

Gerd Klevesaat

A thorough introduction to functional programming in Kotlin,explaining both key concepts of functional programming andperhaps more importantly how it applies to the idiosyncrasies of the language.

William Rudenmalm

About every chapter had an "aha!" a moment. I've frequently found principles that I'd use in OOP too.

Onofrei George

Even though the text was not loaded with traditional FP jargon (such as "monad"), it did a great job of paving the way to understanding those ideas.
