Functional Programming Concepts in Purescript

Functional Programming enthusiast, teaching as I learn. FP can be very overwhelming at an entry level, a lot of learning material is overly complex and intimidating. Sometimes forgetting what may seem simple, is a mountain of information for beginners. Learning FP doesn't have to be that complicated and I hope I can aid you in your journey! :-)

About the Course

PureScript is a small strongly, statically typed language inspired by Haskell and compiles to JavaScript. This means no run-time errors, human readable output, ADTs, and pattern matching (and more!) all at your fingertips.

In this course we will use an online editor to show basics into PureScript with an instant visual representation, investigate the type system and ways to reason about common programing problems with PureScript.

As we explore the type system and common problems that are faced when programming in PureScript we will learn plenty of functional programming concepts as PureScript is a purely functional language.
