About the course

Functional techniques are very useful for clarity, conciseness, and maintainable coding practices. In this course, you will learn some of the functional programming techniques supported in JavaScript, and how to apply them to make your own code easier to read and less repetitive. Afterwards you’ll be able to tell the difference between functional and imperative code, and add recursion to your development tool belt.

At a minimum, students’ should be familiar with closures, scope, passing functions as values, and JavaScript basic concepts. A student who has completed Introduction to JavaScript and the JavaScript: Next Steps course will have all the knowledge necessary to benefit from the techniques in this course.

Once you’ve completed this course, why not check out Introducing TypeScript. This JavaScript compiler is growing in popularity especially since the rise of ES6 and the latest Angular, definitely one to check out.
