This book sets out to smooth the complexity curve of functional programming, making it simple to understand the basics and intuitive to progress to more advanced topics. Michael Pilquist, Paul Chiusano and Rúnar Bjarnason provide concrete examples and exercises to show FP in the real world and reveal how it can improve everyday coding practices. This second edition comes packed with the latest standards of FP, as well as full code updates to Scala 3, and its new language features.
