Just Enough Functional Programming Course Launch

In 2017, I came across The Mostly Adequate Guide to Functional Programming by Brian Lonsdorf. It's an incredible resource and introduction to functional programming in JavaScript. It inspired me to start giving talks about functional programming in 2018. After giving the talk several times, I decided to make a course to go along with it. That course is available to you now on

The course is called Just Enough Functional Programming in JavaScript and I think you'll like it.

It's a concise, to-the-point introduction to functional programming designed to help you get started and start applying these concepts to your work right away.

Here's what you'll learn in the course:

  • Higher order functions
  • Pure functions
  • Immutability
  • Currying
  • Partial application
  • Pointfree programming
  • Functional composition
  • Debugging
  • And more...

In just 30 minutes, you'll learn more than "just enough".

Here's the course intro video. Give it a watch!
