It's all in the name: Learn You a Haskell for Great Good! is a hilarious, illustrated guide to this complex functional language. Packed with the author's original artwork, pop culture references, and most importantly, useful example code, this book teaches functional fundamentals in a way you never thought possible. You'll start with the kid stuff: basic syntax, recursion, types and type classes. Then once you've got the basics down, the real black belt master-class begins: you'll learn to use applicative functors, monads, zippers, and all the other mythical Haskell constructs you've only read about in storybooks. As you work your way through the author's imaginative (and occasionally insane) examples, you'll learn to: –Laugh in the face of side effects as you wield purely functional programming techniques –Use the magic of Haskell's "laziness" to play with infinite sets of data –Organize your programs by creating your own types, type classes, and modules –Use Haskell's elegant input/output system to share the genius of your programs with the outside world Short of eating the author's brain, you will not find a better way to learn this powerful language than reading Learn You a Haskell for Great Good!

Erlang is the language of choice for programmers who want to write robust, concurrent applications, but its strange syntax and functional design can intimidate the uninitiated. Luckily, there’s a new weapon in the battle against Erlang-phobia: Learn You Some Erlang for Great Good! Erlang maestro Fred Hébert starts slow and eases you into the basics: You’ll learn about Erlang’s unorthodox syntax, its data structures, its type system (or lack thereof!), and basic functional programming techniques. Once you’ve wrapped your head around the simple stuff, you’ll tackle the real meat-and-potatoes of the language: concurrency, distributed computing, hot code loading, and all the other dark magic that makes Erlang such a hot topic among today’s savvy developers. As you dive into Erlang’s functional fantasy world, you’ll learn about: –Testing your applications with EUnit and Common Test –Building and releasing your applications with the OTP framework –Passing messages, raising errors, and starting/stopping processes over many nodes –Storing and retrieving data using Mnesia and ETS –Network programming with TCP, UDP, and the inet module –The simple joys and potential pitfalls of writing distributed, concurrent applications Packed with lighthearted illustrations and just the right mix of offbeat and practical example programs, Learn You Some Erlang for Great Good! is the perfect entry point into the sometimes-crazy, always-thrilling world of Erlang.

Deepen your understanding of physics by learning to use the Haskell functional programming language. This book teaches you to solve physics problems using the functional programming paradigm. Ideal for first-time programmers and science aficionados alike, it introduces the Haskell programming language and encourages the writing of beautiful code to match the elegant ideas of theoretical physics. Haskell’s powerful system of types is capable of encoding important mathematical structures like vectors, derivatives, integrals, scalar fields, and differential equations. In addition, you’ll explore Newtonian mechanics and electromagnetics, analyze source code, and discover why Haskell’s high-order functions and referential transparency serve physics so well.

Designed by Facebook to help developers build rapid, responsive UI that can deal with data-intensive usage, it's an essential component in any web developer's skillset. This ReactJS course, in five connected modules, provides you with a fast, engaging and practical route into ReactJS—so you can build powerful, elegant, and modern web applications. Beginning with the Reactive Programming with JavaScript module, you will learn how to take advantage of a reactive and functional programming paradigm to rethink how you approach your JavaScript code. It's built to help you understand the concepts, relevant and applicable for any frontend developer. You'll then dive a little deeper into ReactJS. The second module gives you a rapid look through the fundamentals of ReactJS, showing you how to build a basic application and demonstrating how to implement the Flux architecture. In the third module you will get to grips with ES6—this will make you a more fluent JavaScript developer, giving you control over ReactJS. You can put your old JavaScript hacks aside and instead explore how to create ES6 custom iterators. In the final two modules you'll learn how to fully master ReactJS, exploring its wider ecosystem of tools that have helped to make it one of the most important tools in web development today. Ending with insights and guidance on React Native, the tool built for today's demand for native, intuitive user experiences and interfaces, with this course you can be confident in building dynamic and modern apps with React. Style and approach Consisting of five separate modules, journey from the fundamentals of reactive programming to the exciting possibilities of React Native. Each module builds on each other, helping you to incrementally develop your skills and knowledge.

*** Updated January 2023 *** Ada (ADA) is a native cryptocurrency that runs on Cardano, a third- generation, decentralized public blockchain that aims to protect user privacy, while remaining flexible for regulation. Cardano is spearheaded by Charles Hoskinson who began in crypto with his course Bitcoin or How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Crypto. He subsequently went on to be a co-founder of BitShares and Ethereum before co-founding Cardano in 2015. Cardano is named after Gerolamo Cardano, an influential mathematician in the Renaissance. The platform aims to solve three issues with traditional cryptocurrencies: Sustainability, Scalability & Interoperability. This book is mainly for Cardano newcomers. It does not go deep into the weeds of the technical research papers, nor explore concepts in great detail. The goal is to give a broad overview of Cardano with explainers from Everipedia and Charles Hoskinson quotes where relevant. "This is a super-impressive piece of work on #Cardano from John Greene. Congratulations. And thank you. Every self-respecting kindle (or bookshelf) needs to sport one this summer" - Tim Harrison, IOG VP Community & Ecosystem Communications "This is the Bible of Cardano" - Kristian Portz, NMKR COO "Thanks for making my dreams available to the masses" - Charles Hoskinson, IOG CEO & Founder For more details, see www.CardanoBook.com
