Functional Reactive Programming teaches the concepts and applications of FRP. It offers a careful walk-through of core FRP operations and introduces the concepts and techniques you'll need to use FRP in any language.
About the Technology
Today's software is shifting to more asynchronous, event-based solutions. For decades, the Observer pattern has been the go-to event infrastructure, but it is known to be bug-prone. Functional reactive programming (FRP) replaces Observer, radically improving the quality of event-based code.
About the Book
- Think differently about data and events
- Eliminate Observer one listener at a time
- Explore Sodium, RxJS, and Kefir.js FRP systems
