Discover the power of functional programming, lazy evaluation, monads, concurrency, and immutability to create succinct and expressive implementations
Get a solid understanding of how to apply functional programming concepts in TypeScript
Explore TypeScript runtime features such as event loop, closures, and Prototypes
Gain deeper knowledge on the pros and cons of TypeScript
The book will help you understand the pros, cons, and core principles of functional programming in TypeScript. It will explain higher order functions, referential transparency, functional composition, and monads with the help of effective code examples. Using TypeScript as a functional programming language, you'll also be able to brush up on your knowledge of applying functional programming techniques, including currying, laziness, and immutability, to real-world scenarios.
By the end of this book, you will be confident when it comes to using core functional and reactive programming techniques to help you build effective applications with TypeScript.
