Summary
"Functional programming is a style of programming that is characterized by short functions, lack of statements, and little reliance on variables. You will learn what functional programming is, and how you can apply functional programming in Python. In this video course, we will learn what functional programming is, and how it differs from other programming styles, such as procedural and object-oriented programming. We will also learn why and when functional programming is useful, and why and when it makes programs unnecessarily complex. Then we go on to explore lambda expressions, which are short one-line functions, and are the purest form of functional programming that Python offers. Next, we will learn about higher-order functions: functions that accept other functions as argument, or return other functions as return values. In Python, higher-order functions are elegantly supported through decorators. We will also encounter important concepts from functional programming, such as monads, currying, statelessness, side-effects, memorization, and referential transparency; these concepts may initially seem odd to Python programmers, but we will see how they are elegantly supported by the language. In fact, many Python programmers already make use of concepts from functional programming without being aware of doing so."--Resource description page
