Grokking Simplicity (Manning)
Wednesday, 02 June 2021

This book, subtitled "Taming complex software with functional thinking", is a friendly, practical guide that author Eric Normand says will change the way you approach software design and development. It introduces an approach to functional programming that explains why certain features of software are prone to complexity, and teaches you the functional techniques you can use to simplify these systems so that they’re easier to test and debug.

<ASIN:1617296201>

The book also teaches you to solve the complex timing bugs that inevitably creep into asynchronous and multithreaded code. In ad­vanced sections of the book you learn how composable abstractions help avoid repeating code.
