Leveraging Functional Programming for Data Parsing

For much of January, a key deliverable of the team was to parse and send data between critical systems; a simple enough task really when worded like that. The complexity arose from the included business requirements and edge cases which drove the sprint estimate points from a capable `3` to a concerning `8`, knowing that only a single developer would be focused on this for 100% of their sprint until a POC to be demonstrated came from their efforts. Only then, could the team help carry the torch and make decisions based on the challenges encountered.
