Markov chains in Elixir

31 Jul 2016

Markov chain or Markov model is a process that undergoes transitions from one state to another. The next state depends only on current state and not the sequence of previous events. This allows us to use Markov chains as statistical models for real-world processes.

Pattern matching in Elixir

31 May 2016

Pattern matching is a key feature of functional programming. It allows you to check a given sequence of tokens for the presence of the constituents of some pattern. Using pattern matching you can easily operate with complex data structures in most expressive and eloquent way. Elixir provides pattern matching like any other functional programming language.

Node.js has a simple and powerful stream API. Streams in Node.js are unix pipes that let you perform asynchronous I/O operations by reading source data and pipe it to destination. If your application operates not with streams only, but promises, callbacks or synchronous code, you may want to use more deeper abstraction that fits your needs. In this case you may take a look at Highland.

Functional Ruby gem

28 Nov 2015

Ruby is a great example of multi-paradigm programming language: it allows you to write code in object-oriented, imperative or functional styles. Ruby have much in common with functional programming languages: high-order functions, closures, anonymous functions, continuations, statements all values. If you want to use more functional programming patterns and tools, you might want to take a look on Functional Ruby gem.
