Functional Style of Programming


The trouble with monads

Functional Programming Exchange 2012

Functional Thinking
Neal Ford emphasizes the fact that functional programming uses a different way of solving a problem, thinking about the results rather than the steps to make.

Bind vs Curry in JS

Lazy Functional State Threads (1993)

2011 – The year that was

Monad Transformers and Modular Interpreters (1995)

Theorems for free! (1989)
From the type of a polymorphic function we can derive a theorem that it satisfies. Every function of the same type satisfies the same theorem. This provides a free source of useful theorems, courtesy of Reynolds’ abstraction theorem for the polymorphic lambda calculus.


J Programming Language

Sigplan APL

APL stands for “A Programming Language.” It was created in the 1960’s by Ken Iverson and his colleagues at IBM. Mathematically inspired, its main purpose was to serve as a powerful executable notation for mathematical algorithms. What APL is best known for is its use of non-ASCII symbols, including some Greek letters. It is a dynamically typed interactive, array oriented language with a dynamic scope. In APL, all expressions are evaluated from right to left.

A Programming Language

APL stands for “A Programming Language.” It was created in the 1960’s by Ken Iverson and his colleagues at IBM. The language was very much mathematically inspired and used a powerful notation for mathematical algorithms.

What Does Functional Programming Mean?

Sample applications for programming languages

Static single assignment form

The Trouble with Erlang (or Erlang is a ghetto)

Learn You a Haskell for Great Good!

Functors, Applicative Functors and Monoids

Continuations and Other Functional Patterns

Unrestricted effects and nondeterminism in purely functional code

Do (side) effects really need a total order?


Functional Programming For Java Programmer Scala Or Clojure?

F#, MSTest, and FsUnit

An introduction to F#

A Coder Interview With Dan Mohl
Dan is a “Red Headed Code Monkey” and Microsoft F# MVP. Read on to learn more about his many coding exploits.

Rust Programming Language
Rust is an experimental, concurrent, multi-paradigm, compiled programming language developed by Mozilla Labs.[1] It is designed to be practical, supporting pure-functional, concurrent-actor, imperative-procedural, and object-oriented styles.

Functional Programming Doesn’t Work (and what to do about it)

Clojure Getting Started

Simon Thompson and Huiquing Li on Refactoring in Functional Languages Like Haskell or Erlang
Simon Thompson and Huiqing Li explain refactoring with functional languages and Wrangler (Erlang) and HaRe (Haskell). Also: how Wrangler’s ad-hoc mode allows everyone to write custom refactorings.
