From Concurrency in .NET by Riccardo Terrell
In this article, we discuss the need for concurrency, common issues specific to developing concurrent applications in either imperative or object-oriented programming (OOP) and functional programming, and why the functional programming paradigm is ideal for solving common concurrency issues.
From Type-Driven Development with Idris by Edwin Brady
In this article, we’ll begin writing some complex Idris functions, using its interactive editing features to develop those functions, step by step, in a type-directed way. We’ll use the Atom text editor, because there’s an extension available for editing Idris programs, which can be installed directly from the default Atom distribution. This article assumes you have the interactive Idris mode up and running.
From Clojure: The Essential Reference by Renzo Borgatti
The standard library is one of the most important tools to master a language. One aspect that characterizes the standard library is the fact that it’s already packaged with a language when you first experiment with it. Interestingly, it doesn’t get the amount of attention you’d expect for such an easy-to-reach tool. This article will show you how much wisdom and potential is hidden inside the Clojure standard library.
From Functional Programming in C# by Enrico Buonanno
In this article, I’ll use a simple example that illustrates why pure functions should be your weapon of choice when writing code for parallel and, more generally, concurrent execution.
