Functional Chapter 2

« Functional Beta

Documenting Combine »

If you own "A Functional Programming Kickstart" I've just shipped beta 2.

This new download includes a new chapter called "Functions aren't special".

I also got some feedback from early reviewers who wanted some pictures back that I'd taken out. Instead I'm experimenting with a feature I call ABDCE: "A Badly Drawn Comic Explanation." Let me know what you think.

If you don't yet own the book, you'll find it at A Functional Programming Kickstart. And I'm still offering a discount if you need one.

I had to do a lot of rewriting of chapter two after shipping chapter one.

Chapter one started as a single page, fun little story. One reviewer asked that I expand it and it got huge.

I then looked at chapter two and said - uh oh, this puppy needs a lot of work.

I'm hoping chapter three needs less work - and four and five seem mostly done.

Six and seven aren't written yet. I'm hoping they form in the next couple of days.

Anyway, I just wanted to bring you up to date.
