Functional Python Programming - By "Steven Lott"

Description
Most of us have been introduced to Python as an object-oriented language; a language exclusively using classes to build our programs. While classes, and objects, are easy to start working with, there are other ways to write your Python code. Languages like Java can make it hard to move away from object-oriented thinking, but Python makes it easy.
Given that Python facilitates different approaches to writing code, a logical follow-up question is: what is a different way to write code? While there are several answers to this question, the most common alternative style of writing code is called functional programming. Functional programming gets its name from writing functions which provides the main source of logic in a program.
In this post, we will:
  • Explain the basics of functional programming by comparing it to object-oriented programming.
  • Cover why you might want to incorporate functional programming in your own code.
  • Show you how Python allows you to switch between the two.
