Reading just a few pages makes you better Javascript developer. Jun 01, Bjoern Rochel rated it really liked it Shelves: It's interesting to see functional programming concepts through the lens of JavaScript. The book does a good job of explaining the fundamentals in a clear, concise and hands-on way. I also like that it's pragmatic and advocates using the right abstraction for the problem at hand, which dependent on the problem can also mean an object-oriented approach.

Since I've already spend some time in F and Clojure the book was more of an refresher to me. I think it is a good starting point though if you're interested in functional programming before you actually go on and read a book on F , Haskell, Clojure, et al.

Dec 27, Veselin Nikolov rated it really liked it. It is a strange book. The author is building a functional framework, by using Underscore and jQuery. He explains some design patterns and concepts that you might need, and many that you wouldn't.

The book is very good in convincing the reader that the fully functional approach in JS is not practical. It's also convincing that immutability is the root of all evil. How so, if the author says the opposite? Many of the examples are far from the real world, hard to understand, and the explanations are It is a strange book. Many of the examples are far from the real world, hard to understand, and the explanations are full of terminology.

You can assume that if you do that to a real project, you might be the only one understanding it. Willing to take the risk? View all 5 comments. This is a really solid book on functional programming in JavaScript.

Examples are in JavaScript but ideas can be easily taken to other languages. I don't write much JavaScript but I'm still glad I've read this book.

Apr 16, Jorge David Fernandez rated it it was amazing Shelves: dev. I honestly wish more books were written in this manner. Very straightforward and enlightening. Might take longer to understand because of it's simplicity and lack of over-explanation, but when you do understand it is very eye opening. Aug 22, VanessaRC rated it it was amazing Shelves: programming. It's a great book that goes in depth into the concepts of the topic.

If you have time, and it matters to you you should read it. It's difficult not to take anything out of this book into the real work world and make it better. I recommend it. Oct 06, Juvoni rated it really liked it Shelves: A detailed presentation of various functional programming patterns with code examples and context behind the approaches.

I would recommend for intermediate to advanced readers or those looking to develop a stronger functional mindset to work with libraries like React or Redux. In Functional programming, functions are first class elements of the language and it decreases complexity by reducing the amount of state changes taking place in your programs; copies of data are instead transformed.

I gai A detailed presentation of various functional programming patterns with code examples and context behind the approaches. I gained a lot of insight into currying, closures, recursion, and other powerful functional concepts.

Dec 31, Marc Udoff rated it liked it. This was an ok book on functional programming. The author is more concerned with using underscore to write interesting code than anything else. I came away feeling that he could have done a much better job pitching functional programming and why it is better. A This was an ok book on functional programming. Also, it's likely that as a relative newcomer to underscore and functional programming, I lost the beauty because I just don't have the deep level of understanding.

I do strongly believe in using pure functions and other functional paradigms at times, but this book won't instill the why its so great but more how to do it. Overall, if you had to read about functional programming in JS, this is OK, not terrible not the best. Reading about RxJS or redux might convince you quicker of its value. Jul 12, Tushar rated it really liked it.

Fogus tried presenting functional programming concepts in very lucid and straight forward fashion and he is successful in that. Though book uses Underscore. If you are new to Functional programming but knows JavaScript, this book is for you. Certainly this book is not for green horns. Book is dense and packed with information. One need time and patience to read and grasp this book. Disclaimer: I did not get paid to review this book, and I do not stand to gain anything if you buy the book.

I have no relationship with the publisher or the author. I got electronic format of book from publisher for review. Jul 10, Christopher Wilson rated it it was amazing.

I'm sometimes asked "what is functional programming" and, as cliched as it may be I'd do my best Morpheus: "Unfortunately, no one can be told what functional programming is. You have to see it for yourself. That the examples are in Javascript is certainly helpful, with JS rapidly becoming a programming lingua franca , but the quality of the examples would stand in another language as well.

I would recommend this to anyone lo I'm sometimes asked "what is functional programming" and, as cliched as it may be I'd do my best Morpheus: "Unfortunately, no one can be told what functional programming is. I would recommend this to anyone looking to learn about functional programming whatever the language , and I would make this required reading if I could for any JS developer.

Nov 10, Sarah rated it liked it Shelves: non-fiction , programming , javascript. I'd say this book. Mar 22, Jan Van Ryswyck rated it really liked it Shelves: software-development. This book is a great introduction to functional programming.

However I have briefly used underscore. Nov 21, - whether we call them frontend frameworks, UI kits, design systems, or whatever else, their purpose is clear: to help developers build functional, attractive, reliable interfaces, quickly and easily, from pre-crafted components. It is very much expected that there will be endless stream of new and often times better tools introduced to solve the same set of problems.
