Data-Oriented Programming (Manning)
Wednesday, 17 August 2022

This guide introduces the data-oriented paradigm, showing how the approach represents data with generic immutable data structures to simplify state management, ease concurrency, and do away with the common problems you’ll find in object-oriented code. Yehonathan Sharvit book presents the concepts through conversations, code snippets, and diagrams that help you quickly grok what’s great about DOP.
