Quickly summarizing some of the programming paradigms
Declarative Programming is like asking your friend to draw a landscape. You don’t care how they draw it, that’s up to them.
Imperative Programming is like your friend listening to Bob Ross tell them how to paint a landscape. While good ole Bob Ross isn’t exactly commanding, he is giving them step by step directions to get the desired result.
Functional Functional programming is a programming paradigm where you model everything as a result of a function that avoids changing state and mutating data. Hence, for a given input, the output will always be the same.
Reactive Reactive programming is the practice of programming with asynchronous data streams or event streams. An event stream can be anything like keyboard inputs, button taps, gestures, GPS location. You can listen to a stream and react to it accordingly.
