This is not just another talk on Monads and Functors. You’ll begin with examples of higher order functions and focus on map and flatMap in Swift. But there’s something between a functor and a monad that is more powerful than a functor and more flexible than a monad. you’ll look at Applicatives and try to understand their place in the world of functional programming. You will definitely come away with something you’re going to want to use in your code.
