Functional programming for people who know nothing about functional programming by someone who knows next to nothing about functional programming : a series
The introduction of Swift has brought with it a lot of talk about functional programming. I’d previously only heard the term whilst investigating things like Reactive Cocoa, and had not investigated too deeply because the documentation for that was so full of arcane new terms1, but now it sounds dangerously like becoming mainstream.
As I’ve previously mentioned, I learnt to code on the streets, not some fancy computer school. It looks like I’m going to have to go back out there and work out what this new2 menace is.
