I won’t go into the details of what a Monad is and what exactly it solves. What we will do here is try to come up with a monadic type to encapsulate network result. We will do a side by side comparison with the traditional/classical/imperative and the functional (monadic) approach. In the end you should be able to appreciate and hopefully use the monadic style of wrapping network result without being bothered about the nitty gritty details of what a monad is?Read More
Functor: Mapping over things!
Prelude Specialization is the key to mastery; functional programming specializes only on function. Thats all there is. The mastery with FP is to reduce complexity, which is what software engineering is all about. Don’t get me wrong, Software engineering is also about delivering product not only over engineering. Delivering real world products used to be the stressful part about functional programming. Not anymore. Specialization on functions creates a whole new paradigm.Read More
