Hello there, my name is Oleg Abrazhaev. I have a pretty interesting biography and a career as a Software Engineer for a couple of years. And as many Software Engineers, I haven’t touched functional programming at all, until some time. And when I did, I realized several things.
- OOP and imperative way of writing code is so dominant, that a lot of developers even do not know, that other approaches exist and that there are other ways to write code.
- We use techniques and approaches from a functional programming all the time while writing our OOP code implementations, but we do it unconsciously.
Hello there. In this post, I would like to share examples of parsing different formats to Scala Map data structure. Here I will add only examples for the query string, json, and XML with which I have been working so far. Some code copied and adapted from other sources including SO. My goal is mostly to repeat it for myself and assemble complete example.
For the last 3 months, I started to work with a completely new paradigm for me – functional programming. And with the new programming language – Scala, which is not so new for me, because I know Java and Scala runs on JVM. But the way of writing code in Scala is completely new. I decided to put a bit of my thought about going into the functional direction into this post.
