Skimmer’s Guide for Week 5 of Functional Programming for the Object Oriented Programmer

5 May

What did we read about?

This is our fifth week reading Functional Programming for the Object Orientated Programmer.

  • Begin on page 54, doing all five exercises from the last chapter “Moving the Class Out of the Constructor”.

Very straight forward this week, we are using all the knowledge we have been building up to complete these fairly straightforward exercises. A good chance for people to catch up as well!

What stood out?

  • The first exercise is excellent for practicing refactoring Clojure functions and making them more manageable through helper functions.

If you read nothing else this week…

  • Exercise 4 introduces a neat trick which isn’t intuitive, kudos if you complete it without hints!
