PRINCIPLES AND PRACTICE OF FUNCTIONAL PROGRAMMING


This book is addressed to people eager to learn and practice the principles of functional programming, and the best way to do so is by using a popular functional programming language. To teach our material, we use Racket. It is the result of an ongoing development initiated in the 1990s by a research group called PLT, in the frame of a project for the creation of a pedagogic programming environment based on Scheme.

Racket has outstanding functional programming features, but is also ideal for the study of program design principles in general.
