Example of how you could use Ruby's WeakRef to perform weak memoization
View weak_memoization_through_rubys_weak_ref.rb
require 'weakref'
# This module allows methods to be memoized, but the memoized result can still be GC'd.
# So the object can live for a long time. Eg maybe it's created on server initialization
# and lasts for the lifetime of a server. If the calculated result is large,
# then memoizing it doesn't permanently allocate that memory.

A myriad of ways to implement "service objects"
View how_to_implement_service_objects.rb
# Note1: all `...` below mean "etcetera", like psuedocode, not implying the new Ruby 3 syntax
# Note2: `obj.()` is syntactic sugar for ``
# Given an invocation like this:
OnboardOrganization.(arg1, arg2, ...)
# Here are some possible ways you could implement it:
# 1. If the definition fits in a s single method, you can toss it on a module
# You'd choose a module b/c you don't want a class here since you don't want to
