After decades of relative obscurity, functional programming is finally coming into its own. With concise, easy-to-read code that supports asynchronous, concurrent processing, aspects of functional programming have begun to appear in several traditionally object-oriented languages such as C# and Java. This practical book shows C# programmers how to use functional programming features without having to navigate an entirely new language.
Because of the shared runtime environment common to C# and F# languages, it's possible to use most of F#'s functional features in C# as well. Author Simon J. Painter explains how you can write functional code in C# right away, without having to install dependencies or features newer than .NET 3. You'll learn why functional programming concepts can bring immediate benefit to your work.Learn what functional programming is and how it originatedDiscover features of the functional paradigm using a more familiar languageStart coding functionally in C# right away, without relying on third-party librariesWrite code that's more robust, less error prone, and easier to testExamine less conventional ways to look at structures available in C#Explore the practicalities of using functional C# in a business environment
