Uncover the secrets of functional programming using C# and change the way you approach your applications forever
About This Book
Who This Book Is For
This book is suitable for C# developers with basic prior knowledge of C# and with no functional programming experience at all.
What You Will Learn
Functional programming makes your application faster, improves performance, and increases your productivity. C# code is written at a higher level of abstraction, so that code will be closer to business requirements, abstracting away many low-level implementation details.
This book bridges the language gap for C# developers by showing you how to create and consume functional constructs in C#. We also bridge the domain gap by showing how functional constructs can be applied in business scenarios. We’ll take you through lambda expressions and extension methods, and help you develop a deep understanding of the concepts and practices of LINQ and recursion in C#.
By the end of the book, you will be able to write code using the best approach and will be able to perform unit testing in functional programming, changing how you write your applications and revolutionizing your projects.
Style and approach
This book takes a pragmatic approach and shows you techniques to write better functional constructs in C#. We’ll also show you how these concepts can be applied in business scenarios.
