About the Book

Book description

Discover the benefits of regularized programming by implementing Bosque to build a variety of reliable apps

Key Features

  • Get up and running with the Bosque programming language and use it to build better software
  • Streamline your app development and improve productivity using Bosque programming
  • Eliminate sources of complexity such as loops, recursion, and invariants to develop quality products

Book Description

Bosque is a new high-level programming language inspired by the impact of structured programming in the 1970s. It adopts the TypeScript syntax and ML semantics and is designed for writing code that is easy to reason about for humans and machines. With this book, you'll understand how Bosque supports high productivity and cloud-first development by removing sources of accidental complexity and introducing novel features.

This short book covers all the language features that you need to know to work with Bosque programming. You'll learn about basic data types, variables, functions, operators, statements, and expressions in Bosque and become familiar with advanced features such as typed strings, bulk algebraic data operations, namespace declarations, and concept and entity declarations. This Bosque book provides a complete language reference for learning to program with Bosque and understanding the regularized programming paradigm. You'll also explore real-world examples that will help you to reinforce the knowledge you've acquired. Additionally, you'll discover more advanced topics such as the Bosque project structure and contributing to the project.

By the end of this book, you'll have learned how to configure the Bosque environment and build better and reliable software with this exciting new open-source language.

What you will learn

  • Find out what the Bosque project is
  • Identify accidental complexity in code and how to overcome it with Bosque
  • Understand the principles of the regularized programming paradigm
  • Install and configure the Bosque environment
  • Get hands-on experience using the Bosque language and its key features
  • Recognize the advantages of explicit code intermediate representation design

Who this book is for

This book is for experienced developers and early adopters who are interested in learning a new, mindset-changing programming language. You’ll also find this book useful if you know TypeScript or JavaScript programming and want to understand the advantages of Bosque compared to other programming languages. Experience with any programming language and knowledge of various programming paradigms such as structured programming and functional programming are required to get started with this book.
