Functional techniques in Python

Functional techniques in Python: Python: Programming Efficiently
Functional techniques in Python: Python: Programming Efficiently

In Python, functions are first-class objects, meaning that they can be handled by a program just like any other data structure. Doing so makes for efficient and expressive programming, since you can, for instance, pass an operation to a function as a parameter. In this video, learn how to handle function objects, to obtain modified function objects with partially filled arguments (_partials_), and to write _higher-order functions_ that have functions as their return values.
