Dealing with stateful computations can be a challenge when writing purely functional JavaScript. They can result in undesired variable declaration at best and boilerplate state management code in every function dependent on the state at its worst.

In this course we will explore a well know Algebraic Data Type named State, that is built from the ground up to address these 🌽cerns. While this course will be focused around a State implementation provided by a library named crocks, a majority of the techniques we learn here can be used with most of the State implementations in the wild.

    How will you use what you learned from this course?

    It's hard to see how to use this in practice, with day-to-day code. Examples are too synthetic.

    What did you like about this course and how will it help you?

    A lot on the how but little on the why. Well explained but at the end of the course I still feel like I don't know what the state monad is for, need more concrete examples.
