Functional programming is one of the most mind-bending and counter-intuitive topics for most PHP developers. While almost every developer knows what a PHP function is, that’s just the first part of the power that is functional programming. By harnessing the power of higher-order functions, we can write clearer, more accessible, and maintainable code. Applicable in PHP, JavaScript, and beyond, fewer loops will make you love programming more than ever before.
