Applying Functional Programming Techniques in Java 8
Beyond lambda expressions and streams, this course will teach you the concepts and techniques that lie at the foundation of functional programming and how to apply them in Java.
What you'll learn
At the core of writing more robust and maintainable code is a thorough knowledge of functional programming. In Applying Functional Programming Techniques in Java, you'll learn how to program in a functional style with Java beyond the use of lambdas and streams. First, you’ll learn why functional programming matters and how it can be used with Java. Next, you’ll explore function composition and partial application to create reusable functions. Finally, you'll discover how to abstract control structures and use types as computational contexts to program in a functional style. When you're finished with this course, you’ll have a foundational knowledge of functional programming that will help you as you move forward to write more robust and easier to maintain Java code.
