SummaryFunctional Programming in Scala is a serious tutorial for programmers looking to learn FP and apply it to the everyday business of coding. The book guides readers 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.Purchase of the print book includes a free eBook in PDF, Kindle, and ePub formats from Manning Publications.About the TechnologyFunctional 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 an emerging 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.

Harnessing the Power of Functional Programming in .NET Applications
LINQ represents a paradigm shift for developers used to an imperative/object oriented programming style, because LINQ draws on functional programming principles. Thinking in LINQ addresses the differences between these two by providing a set of succinct recipes arranged in several groups, including: Basic and extended LINQ operatorsText processing Loop refactoring Monitoring code health Reactive Extensions (Rx.NET)Building domain-specific languagesUsing the familiar "recipes" approach, Thinking in LINQ shows you how to approach building LINQ-based solutions, how such solutions are different from what you already know, and why they're better. The recipes cover a wide range of real-world problems, from using LINQ to replace existing loops, to...
Harnessing the Power Of Java 8 Lambda Expressions
Intermediate level, for programmers fairly familiar with Java, but new to the functional style of programming and lambda expressions.Get ready to program in a whole new way. Functional Programming in Java will help you quickly get on top of the new, essential Java 8 language features and the functional style that will change and improve your code. This short, targeted book will help you make the paradigm shift from the old imperative way to a less error-prone, more elegant, and concise coding style that's also a breeze to parallelize. You'll explore the syntax and semantics of lambda expressions, method and constructor references, and functional interfaces. You'll design and write applications better using the new standards in Java 8 and the JDK. Lam...
An Introduction to Object-Functional Programming
Scala is a highly expressive, concise and scalable language. It is also the most prominent method of the new and exciting methodology known as object-functional programming. In this book, the authors show how Scala grows to the needs of the programmer, whether professional or hobbyist. They teach Scala with a step-by-step approach and explain how to exploit the full power of the industry-proven JVM technology. Readers can then dive into specially chosen design challenges and implementation problems, inspired by the trials of real-world software engineering. It also helps readers to embrace the power of static typing and automatic type inference. In addition, the book shows how to use the dual-object and functional-oriented natures combined at Scala's...
