Although functional programming theory is useful, most day-to-day functional programming does not require any category theory or even any type classes. Most problems can benefit from a domain-specific model, constructed using immutable data types and operators. Such functionally-oriented solutions are simple, composable, type-safe, and testable.
In this course, developers will learn how to write simple functional solutions to everyday business problems, without jargon and without type classes. Developers will learn how to construct type-safe and composable solutions to domain-specific problems, and how the single responsibility principle of object-oriented programming translates into orthogonality. When developers leave, they’ll have newfound ability to directly benefit from functional programming techniques across their whole application, in a way that’s highly accessible to the whole team and new hires.
