Day 19 – Functional Programming with Raku

Functional Programming in Raku I watched a really nice video recently, Functional Programming in 40 minutes, which I thought was really good. I’ve done bits of functional programming over the years but I know lots of people find the ideas behind it quite confusing. So the first thing I’d say is go watch that video,Continue reading “Day 19 – Functional Programming with Raku”

Day 18: What is my concurrent or parallel Raku program doing?

Raku makes it easy to introduce a bit of parallelism into a program – at least, when the solution lends itself to that. Its asynchronous programming capabilities also shine when building concurrent applications. During the last year, I’ve enjoyed employing both of these in my work. However, I also discovered that something was missing. ItContinue reading “Day 18: What is my concurrent or parallel Raku program doing?”
