Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
The objective of the course - to understand and learn the functional programming paradigm. Tasks - to learn how to work with objects represented in the form of basic data structures, learn the concept of recursion and be able to apply it. Learn practical application of functional programming paradigm. After completing the course students will have the competencies and skills in the use of non-imperative programming.
