In this interview I had the chance to ask Bob Martin various things that had been lingering in my mind for a while, including but not limited to:

Jesse: It’s great to meet you finally in person, virtually in person. All right, so quick introduction for the audience. Uncle Bob has been around for a while now. He’s popularized popularized many important principles that are very salient to many programmers today. Author of many books, clean code, clean coder, clean agile, clean architecture, and most recently, Functional Design: Principles, Patterns and Practices.

I’ve probably got the order of those three things wrong But I wanted to start a conversation on functional design I’m interested to know yeah you’ve You’ve been around in mostly in the object oriented space for a while But you’ve recently transitioned over to closure and it seems like you’ve fallen in love with that language From some of your blog posts. I’m keen to know. So what was the impetus behind writing this particular book?

Bob: Okay, well the impetus for writing that book was the last 12 to 15 years of investigating functional program I started this process a decade and a half ago because somebody told me I should read a book and the title of that book was structure and interpretation of computer programs, which is classical that I had not read.
