Round 30: Things We Say

Hello Hackers.

Thank you to The Ladders for hosting Round 30, and providing pizza and alcohol. Not unlike any other company in NYC, they're hiring, and because they were so nice to us, we repeat that here. They've hired a few Hacker Schoolers, none of which run away, which says something good about their culture. Reach out to John Connolly if you're interested:

Many years ago, Marius Eriksen wrote asome code to do pattern matching in Python. I quickly forked the code and had envisioned expanding upon it by "fixing" the interface, and making it possible to dispatch functions with it like the Erlang example he provided.

Like most of my ambitions of this type, it never happened, and despite the fact that I had forked the repo it went completely untouched. In the mean time, though, I had played with with, on numerous occassions, experiments that were fueled by my inability to properly extend the language without diving into it's internals.

But, recently, I had a little bit of time to spare while waiting for a meeting, and so, I made an attempt at providing pattern matched function dispatch to Python.

With it, Marius's example looks
