One thing that sometimes comes out worse in the move to FP, though, is organization. By comparison, Object Oriented Programming classes are a pretty useful unit of organization – methods have to be in the same class as the data they work on, so your code is pushed towards being organized in pretty logical ways.
I was curious about this book in particular because I wanted to know how a book would that explains functional programming for people that are starting this journey would be My path to learning functional programming was not linear and I had to go through many different resources until I finally wrapped my head around this (not so) new concept.
I’ve been using my investment time at thoughtbot to build a multiplayer chess game using Elixir and Phoenix in order to hone my skills in that area. One of the trickiest and most fun parts of the project so far has been generating all the possible moves for a player to make.
