Create succinct and expressive implementations with functional programming in Python Key Features Learn how to choose between imperative and functional approaches based on expressiveness, clarity, and performance Get familiar with complex concepts such as monads, concurrency, and immutability Apply functional Python to common Exploratory Data Analysis (EDA) programming problems Book Description If you’re a Python developer who wants to discover how to take the power of functional programming (FP) and bring it into your own programs, then this book is essential for you, even if you know next to nothing about the paradigm. Starting with a general overview of functional concepts, you’ll explore common functional features such as first-class and higher-order functions, pure functions, and more. You’ll see how these are accomplished in Python 3.6 to give you the core foundations you’ll build upon. After that, you’ll discover common functional optimizations for Python to help your apps reach even higher speeds. You’ll learn FP concepts such as lazy evaluation using Python’s generator functions and expressions.
