A comprehensive guide to functional programming in C#!
Functional Programming in C# provides a unique and fresh approach to programming in C#. The book focuses on providing solutions to real development problems with functional programming methods. Inside, C# expert and MVP Oliver Sturm explains the details of relevant language features in C# and describes the theory and practice of using functional techniques in C#. Sturm provides practical and versatile examples, which combine approaches to solve problems in several different areas, including complex scenarios like concurrency and high-performance calculation frameworks as well as simpler use cases like Web Services and business logic implementation. Functional Programming in C# will help programmers find a solution without leaving their programming language and show them the benefits and limitations of C# programming with the primary aim of helping programmers make the most out of what they already know.
Functional Programming in C#:
Demonstrates how to use currying to convert multi-parameter functions into function chains
Walks you through using the function construction techniques of partial application and composition to create specialized functions out of general-purpose curried function chains
Provides coverage of memoization and its use for caching of previously retrieved or calculated return values
Details the use of monads in functional programming and shows you their relevance to C# programming as well as practical implementations and their limits
