Functional Programming with Python

Abhishek koserwal (~abhishek48)




Functional programming is an asset addition to the toolset. It helps in enhancing performance & readability of code base. Makes your imperative (how to approach?) to more functional (what to approach?). Easy to test and remove the complexity of stateful mocks. It leads to modular code. Help in building better domain model with object oriented paradigm approach. it is the building block of reactive paradigm know as functional reactive programming

  • Basic Concept: pure functions, side effects, first class citizen, higher order function.
  • Immutable data structure & managing state in functions.
  • Replacing imperative constructs with function: loops, variable assignment etc.
  • Product higher level abstraction
  • FP use-case: maps, lambda, filter, reduce, sorted, comprehension, decorators etc
  • libraries support FP/Immutability.
  • Glimpse of FRP: Functional reactive programming


  • Python Basic
