How to prevent application-specific error cases from infecting your domain models.



Functional error-handling is often done with the Either monad. If all is good, the right case is returned, but if things go wrong, you'll want to return a value that indicates the error. In an application, you'll often need to be able to distinguish between different kinds of errors.

Falling Free by Lois McMaster Bujold
Falling Free (Vorkosigan Saga, #4)
by Lois McMaster Bujold (Goodreads Author)
read in January, 2017
Rate this book
Clear rating
It takes its good time getting started, but after some 100+ pages, it transforms into quite the page-turner. Easily the hardest science-fiction I've yet read from Bujold.

Revenger by Alastair Reynolds
Revenger
by Alastair Reynolds
read in December, 2016

Clear rating
While I get the impression that Revenger is deliberately targeted at a young adult audience, it's the most pleasing work Alastair Reynolds has released for years. In some works Reynolds exposes a mean streak that fortunately never rises to the levels ...more

Training from the Back of the Room! by Sharon L. Bowman
Rate this book
Clear rating
This book comes highly recommended, and I'm certain that I need it, yet it doesn't work for me at all.

I occasionally do highly technical training (in advanced computer programming), and while I'm on firm footing when it comes to my knowledge of the t

After my success with Autumn: A Folio Anthology, I was happy that this Winter anthology was included with one of my Folio purchases. It didn't quite live up to expectations, though.

The selection in this anthology leans more towards the prose side, wh

For some irrational reason, I'm usually not fond of short-story collections. You could argue, though, whether this books is a short-story collection, or a collection of novellas. The book is 288 pages, and contains three stories, so each one is flesh ...more

How the Mind Works by Steven Pinker
How the Mind Works
by Steven Pinker
read in December, 2016
Rate this book
Clear rating
Metaphorically speaking, this work starts with much hemming and hawing. It's clear that Steven Pinker has written, taught, and spoken about the subject of the human mind before, and that he's had his share of run-ins with people who strongly disagree ...more

John le Carré
“A lot of people see doubt as legitimate philosophical posture. They think of themselves in the middle, whereas of course really, they're nowhere.”
John le Carré, The Honourable Schoolboy

“Will highly comprehensible code, by virtue of being easy to modify, inevitably be supplanted by increasingly less elegant code until some equilibrium is achieved between comprehensibility and fragility? Perhaps simple on the outside/fragile on the inside can be an effective survival strategy for evolving artifacts.”
Brian Foote Joseph Yoder
