Making Your C# 7 Code More Functional

by Zoran Horvat

With lots of new functional syntax in C#, programmers may struggle to find proper place for it in their notoriously object-oriented code. This course unveils the mystery and puts OO and functional design elements in the right proportion.

What you'll learn

Mixing paradigms in modern C# is not an easy endeavor. New functional syntax has its place, but not in every piece of code and every design. In this course, Making Your C# 7 Code More Functional, you will first learn how functional thinking can have positive effect on your software design, while still letting the design remain on the object-oriented side. Next, you will discover how you can leverage new functional syntax to solve problems which are hard to solve using pure object-oriented techniques. Finally, more than anything else, you will have the opportunity to see where the danger of misusing functional coding style lies in object-oriented code. By the end of this course, you should feel comfortable about functional thinking style in object-oriented code, for the better of your designs.
