Thanks for the article, wanted to start with FP in Android as well so this is pretty interesting.

They are related but not the same. In fact, one of the uses of monads is to allow you to do impure operations(like writing to a file) in a pure functional language like Haskell(accomplished via the IO monad). A full discussion on monads is outside the scope of this series since it requires knowledge of category theory but I will try to show how we can use some monads in Android code later.

Like what you read? Give Anup Cowkur a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
