Be sure to also read the linked article by Krzysztof Cwalina: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/kcwa...

As far as I can tell, interfaces and abstract classes are isomorphic to each other: http://blog.ploeh.dk/2018/02/19/abstr...

Some restrictions are required in order to make that claim truthful. These are covered by the discussion in the comments section on the same page.

Hi DHEERAJ Kumar

Thank you for writing, and for your kind words. IIRC, the book's introduction "About this book" contains information about code downloads. It's not a repository, but a .zip file, which is basically because GitHub wasn't really the piece of developer infrastructure in 2012 that it is today.

Manning Press owns the copyright of the book, including the source code, so it's up to them what to do with the code, and how to host it. Since the copyright isn't mine, it'd be illegal for anyone but Manning to host it on GitHub.

Thinking with Types - Type-Level Programming in Haskell by Sandy Maguire

I've been dabbling with basic Haskell for years, but whenever I'd run int GADTs, type families, Generics, existential types, etc. I'd have no idea what people were writing or talking about. I'd tried to read up on some of those topics, but found the ...more

The Memory Illusion by Julia  Shaw
Rate this book
Clear rating
A tour of what we (think we) know about memory, from experimental psychology over (popular) descriptions of brain anatomy. I had to pay attention in order to be able to follow the biological descriptions, but it's also not my forte.

Sært upersonlig bog om Peter Handkes mor, skrevet som reaktion på hendes selvmord.

Man undrer sig over hvorfor det meste af bogen er holdt i generelle vendinger, med 'man' oftere forekommende end 'hun'. Der er sikkert en pointe med det; måske at moder

I'm clearly neither intelligent nor educated enough to appreciate this masterpiece.

It's a unique experience to me that a book this difficult to read is so entertaining.

When I started, the first few weeks I wouldn't be able to read ten pages before going to sleep. Not because it was in the least boring, but because it's my habit to

Righting Software by Juval Lowy
"The book description of Righting Software sounds like the perfect book for me. It combines so many things I am interested in that the combination of it must be great. Unfortunately, what the book delivers is anything but good.

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
