Functional SOLID, Part 1
by Matt Stine
In this issue we'll begin a short series on the intersection of the SOLID principles of object-oriented design and programming with the functional programming paradigm. We’ll begin with a short discussion describing the motivation for this series, followed by a quick overview of SOLID and an in-depth dissection of the Single Responsibility Principle. In September, we'll look at the Open-Closed and Liskov Substitution Principles, followed by the Interface Segregation and Dependency Inversion Principles in October. Finally, in November, we'll go "meta" with the SOLID principles, examine their overall relationship to software complexity and discuss their applicability to the entire spectrum of programming paradigms.
