In the last few years, the software development industry has seen a resurgence of functional programming. But what is it? And how do you get started?

“Just Enough” is an introduction to functional programming, written in JavaScript, that doesn’t get bogged down in the jargon and mathematical theory that can be so intimidating. Instead, it provides an approachable introduction to the paradigm that will give you the education and confidence you need to start using the programming style right away.

With “Just Enough” as our guide, this course will focus on the foundational knowledge needed to approach any functional language. By the end of the course, you will understand:

  • higher order functions
  • pure functions
  • immutability
  • currying
  • partial application
  • pointfree programming
  • functional composition

In just 30 minutes, you’ll learn more than just enough.
