I've done reading all available chapters in this book and I think that this is the best available guide about FP ever. But the problem is that like others it miss real world examples.
I'm requesting to add chapter with an implementation of some non trivial application, that uses all the staff explained in this books. I suggest to use more complex example than flickr.

Maybe add this link as a reference?
http://scott.sauyet.com/Javascript/Talk/2014/01/FuncProgTalk/

It has a pretty good example of using Ramda.

This is hands down the most accessible guide to functional programming. I'm eagerly looking forward to the upcoming chapters. Thanks @DrBoolean :)

I have to agree with @gyzerok and @AriaMinaei that this is the best guide about FP out there and I'm really looking forward to reading the 2nd part (and the 3rd as well). Thank you @DrBoolean for all your effort, you are a great teacher.

I completely agree too! We are even considering to use this guide as the main guideline in new JavaScript course on our faculty.

Hi @gyzerok I'm slowly getting through Traversable/Foldable. I was going to do Monoids after that, but maybe I should do example pt 2 instead.

I would love to see another example. Maybe half way through part 2. This part introduced significantly more information in the first 3 chapters than all of part 1. All of which still seems pretty abstract without a solid real world example.

I have done this example which is inspired from Chapter 6, using MithrilJs (much terser and lighter than jQuery) and just plain js functions, and a slightly more elaborate one here if anybody is interested.
