How to write functions with the flexible APIs offered by languages such as Ruby without sacrificing more type safety than strictly necessary. Then how to test them without excess code bloat.
Lots of fun will be had with Interfaces, Type Switches, Generics, and go test.
Every coder thinks they know functions. Neat little packages of code for hiding away all that ugly implementation detail we only want to write once and would prefer no one else ever saw. In fact we take them so much for granted that when academics wax lyrical about their amazing potential we tend to assume they’re talking about the very same thing and wonder what all the fuss is about. Especially when presented with languages like Haskell which read more like a maths textbook and come with that knowing smile our parents had when telling us to eat our green vegetables: this is better for you.
We encrypt our web connections. We encrypt our files. Why the heck don’t we encrypted our database tables? It may sound a bit mad encrypting something we’ll need to be able to search whilst it’s still encrypted but that’s what you’re going to learn in a single session.
