01: Scala Functional Programming basics – pure functions, referential transparency & side effects

Q1. What is a pure function?
A1. A pure function is a function where the following conditions are met:

1) The Input solely determines the output.

2) The function does not change its input.

3) The function does not do anything else except computing the output. This means NO I/O, which is no reading from database, file or input console & no writing to a database, file or output console.… Read more ...

03: Coding Scala Way – Lazy Eval

Example #6: Lazy initialization & evaluation of code Scala support “views”, which are collections that can be lazily evaluated. One use for views is when you need to traverse a collection of values which are expensive to compute and you only need one value at a time.

04: Coding Scala Way – Null checks with Option-Some-None

Example #10: Null checks with “Option-Some-None”

Nulls in Scala is a code smell, and a better way to handle null values is with an “Option“, which has 2 sub classes “Some” that has a value and a “None” that does not have a value. Instead of checking for “myVal != null”, you can use “pattern matching” to deal with null values.… Read more ...
