Abstract

Explore the functional aspects of JavaScript.

Outline

JavaScript seems to have evolved over the years into a multi-paradigm programming language but the fact remains that many of its core capabilities are rooted in functional programming (FP). In this session we'll review some interesting FP like things you can do with JS. Topics covered include - functions (duh!), closures, partial function application, memoization and more.

Requirements

Knowledge of JavaScript fundamentals.
