Learning Modern C++ Functional Programming

Video Description

Apply Functional Programming techniques to C++ to build highly modular, testable, and reusable code

About This Video

  • Modularize your applications and make them highly reusable and testable.
  • Get familiar with complex concepts such as lazy evaluation, immutability, and caching values using memorization technique.
  • A highly practical guide to building functional code in C++ filled with lots of examples and real-world use cases.

In Detail

Functional programming allows developers to divide programs into smaller, reusable components that ease the creation, testing, and maintenance of software as a whole. Combined with the power of C++, you can develop robust and scalable applications that fulfil modern day software requirements. This course will help you discover all the C++ 17 features that can be applied to build software in a functional way.

The course is divided into three modules—the first introduces the fundamentals of functional programming and how it is supported by modern C++. The second module explains how to efficiently implement C++ features such as pure functions and immutable states to build robust applications. The last module describes how to achieve concurrency and apply design patterns to enhance your application’s performance.

By the end of the course, you will be familiar with the functional approach of programming and will be able to use these techniques on a daily basis
