Synopsis:

This course is prezented in Czech.

Functional programming represents one of the traditional programming paradigms. Traditional and novel functional programming languages are on the rise nowadays and the functional paradigm becomes an important construct of traditionally imperative languages (C++, C#, Java). As such, mastering this paradigm becomes a necessary competence of a software engineer: the theory and especially the practice.

Study Objective:

We demonstrate the concepts using the pure functional language Haskell, however students will be able to apply the knowledge in other languages, as well; an overview of contemporary functional languages and their characteristics will be provided.

Study materials:

Textbooks:
