Stack Wars: Functional Programming Strikes Back!


As our codebase grows, so its complexity does. Code it’s becoming harder to read, test, debug, maintain… such a mess! Let’s go back to the cool ’80s and start a journey to discover a different way to approach software development: Functional Programming. We’ll see how FP can actually save hours of debugging and improve our productivity while writing a complex frontend JavaScript application or a huge backend distributed system in any programming language. You’ll never write an impure function again!
