The more Swift code I write, the more I’m realizing I need to understand Functional Programming a lot better. So this holiday season, I’ll be reading a few books on the subject, and figuring out how to best apply functional principles to my Swift and iOS code in an ongoing effort.
Of course I turned to Twitter to figure out which books to read, and I got a great list. Here are the recommendations for those who are interested as well:
- Real World Haskell
- Learn You a Haskell
- Structure and Interpretation of Computer Programs (SICP)
- Clojure for the Brave and True
- Beginning Haskell: A Project-Based Approach
- The Art of Computer Programming
- F# for Fun and Profit
- Programming in Haskell
- The Little Schemer
I’ll be starting with Real World Haskell and then go into SICP.
