The point this book makes is that progressing through a well-formulated pedagogy one can absorb Monads as easily as one can absorb Sets.
Introduction to Functional Programming
Same guy who also brought you generics with type erasure in Java. Bar Shirtcliff rated it really liked it Feb 14, Jobaer Chowdhury rated it it was amazing Apr 15, There are complete new case studies, and many new exercises. Trivia About Introduction to F The four instead of five stars is because, unfor I highly recommend the book to anybody looking for a solid base of functional functionak theory.
Lots of rigorous ingroduction and great discussion of things like strictness and bottom values.
One of the most inspiring CS book I’ve ever read. All in all, it is an excellent book with which to hone theory, and for that I can’t recommend it enough. The four instead of five stars is because, unfortunately, it is not as self-contained as it claims to be, and some of the exercises can’t be tackled with only the introduction programmimg the topic given by the author.
Tim Robinson rated it it was amazing Apr 02, Still a good book. On the other hand the implications of Monadic computations are far-reaching. Pepe rated it it was amazing Nov 07, There are new chapters on program optimisation, abstract data After the success of the first edition, Introduction to Functional Programming using Haskell has been thoroughly updated and revised to provide a complete grounding in the principles and techniques of programming with functions.
Lists with This Book. Comprehensive, readable, and demanding.
For more practical matters, I’d recommend Haskell Programming: Language-agnostic to the extent that most code can be easily translated to most modern functional programming languages. Related to this I have seen interviews with Eric Meijer where he talked about preferring the first edition of this book because is was more conceptual and not Haskell specific.
Introduction to Functional Programming by Richard S. Bird
What was great about the treatment was that each new concept was introduced with little fanfare. Return to Book Page. Read the first e Bird and Wadler 1st ed.

Thanks for telling us about the problem.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. I have started reading the first book as a PDF and can see his point. It uses a Functional Language that looks Like Miranda. If you like books and love to build cool products, we may be looking for you. Daniel rated it really liked it Feb 01, I probably should read it again but If I recall well Monads and Lenses were not explicitly explained in book or course.
The focus is mainly on introdutcion theoretical side, being many of the exercises proofs.
Of course, more recent topics like idioms applicative functors aren’t touched upon. The second edition uses the popular language Haskell to express functional programs. Sep 10, Chiqing Zhang rated it it was amazing. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. Tom rated it really liked it Aug 04, Be the first to ask jntroduction question about Introduction to Functional Programming.
After the success of the first edition, Introduction to Functional Programming using Haskell has been thoroughly updated and revised to provide a complete grounding in the principles and techniques of programming with functions.
As in the first edition, progra,ming is an emphasis on the fundamental techniques for reasoning about functional programs, and for deriving them systematically from their specifications. Dmitry Paramonov rated it it was amazing Aug 03, While set up as an introductory book to languages of the Haskell family, the book actually has a fair share of theory which modern tutorials of Haskell lack.
I highly recommend the book to anybody looking for a solid base of functional programming theory. There are other authors named Richard Bird: Read the first edition, since subsequent editions are rewritten more in the “programming language overview” style.
As birv strong point, the technique of program specification and derivation by inverse functions is elegantly described, easily mechanized, and of lasting value. And Miranda although outdated can still be run if you have something that runs Solaris Ilumnios.
