This book is for developers who want to use Python to write programs that lean heavily on functional programming design patterns. You should be comfortable with Python programming, but no knowledge of functional programming paradigms is needed.
Python is an easy-to-learn and extensible programming language that offers a number of functional programming features. It's ideally suited to a number of applications in the broad space of data science.
This practical guide demonstrates the Python implementation of a number of functional programming techniques and design patterns. Starting with a general overview of functional programming concepts, you will explore common functional features such as first-class and higher-order functions, pure functions and more, and how these are accomplished in Python. Additionally, you will cover how common functional optimizations can be handled in Python. You'll also explore data preparation techniques and data exploration in depth. Moving on, you will learn how the Python standard library fits the functional programming model. The book concludes with a look at the PyMonad project and some larger examples.
By the end of this book, you will be able to understand what functional programming is all about, its impact on the programming workflow, why it's important, and how to implement it in Python.
Steven F. Lott has been programming since the 70s, when computers were large, expensive, and rare. As a contract software developer and architect, he has worked on hundreds of projects, from very small to very large. He's been using Python to solve business problems for over 10 years.
He's particularly adept at struggling with thorny data representation problems.
He has also authored Mastering Object-oriented Python by Packt Publishing.
He is currently a technomad who lives in various places on the east coast of the US. His technology blog can be found at http://slott-softwarearchitect.blogspot.com.
