OOP: How to learn FP the fastest way

If you’re a computer programmer who’s using object-oriented programming (OOP), and:

  • you want to learn functional programming (FP), and
  • you want to learn FP as fast as possible (without functors, monads, and all the other category theory), then
  • the 7-step process shown in this image is the fastest path I know.

If you should also want a guidebook on your journey, my new best-selling book, Learn Functional Programming Without Fear, can help guide the way. At the time of this writing, the eBook is currently just $10 and the paperback is only $20.

(You’re also welcome to respond to my LinkedIn post, which is where this image comes from.)
