- Work with errors without using exceptions
- Work with state and concurrency
- Interact with functional structures that define common behaviors
- Write code that performs I/O without sacrificing functional programming
The first edition of Functional Programming in Scala
has helped over 30,000 developers discover the power of functional programming. This second edition is fully updated to Scala 3 and the latest standards of FP. Inside, you’ll find a serious tutorial for programmers looking to apply functional programming to improve their everyday coding practices. You’ll progress from the basics to advanced topics in a logical, concise, and clear progression. Throughout, concrete examples and exercises open up the world of functional programming.
about the technology
Functional programming (FP) is a style of software development emphasizing functions that don't depend on program state. Functional code is easier to test and reuse, simpler to parallelize, and less prone to bugs than other code. Scala is a popular JVM language that offers strong support for FP. Its familiar syntax and transparent interoperability with Java make Scala a great place to start learning FP.
about the book
Functional Programming in Scala, Second Edition
teaches you functional programming from first principles using the powerful Scala language. You’ll develop the unique skills you need to start thinking functionally through hands-on exercises and coding challenges. New to the revised second edition, each exercise comes with extensive annotations to help you understand functional programming in-depth. You’ll even learn how to build your own Scala functional library that’s perfectly adapted to your needs. You’ll soon be writing Scala code that’s easier to read, easier to reuse, better for concurrency, and less prone to bugs and errors.
about the reader
For programmers experienced in Java or Scala. No prior knowledge of functional programming required.
about the author
has been using Scala since 2009, when he was convinced to give it a try by listening to Dick Wall and the Java Posse. He introduced Scala at Comcast and has written a number of open source functional programming libraries, including scodec, simulacrum, and ip4s. He is also the lead maintainer of FS2, a functional streaming library, and contributes heavily to the Typelevel ecosystem.
