Every Argument for Static Typing Applies to Typed Errors

Every Argument for Static Typing Applies to Typed Errors

Think of all the arguments you've heard as to why static typing is desirable — every single one of those arguments applies equally well to using types to represent error conditions.

An odd thing I’ve observed about the Scala community is how many of its members believe that a) a language with a sophisticated static type system is very valuable; and b) that using types for error handling is basically a waste of time. If static types are useful—and if you like Scala, presumably you think they are—then using them to represent error conditions is also useful.

Here's a little secret of functional programming: errors aren't some special thing that operate under a different set of rules to everything else. Yes, there are a set of common patterns we group under the loose heading "error handling", but fundamentally we're just dealing with more values. Values that can have types associated with them. There's absolutely no reason why the benefits of static ty

Implementing a client for feature flags

On implementing a client for feature flags in your UI codebase

This document isn't an explainer on Feature Flags, you can find that with my amateur writeup, or literally hundreds of better writeups out there.

This document is also agnostic to the choice of service you'd use: LaunchDarkly or or optimizely or whatever; that's orthogonal to this conversation.

Instead, this document is a list of considerations for implementing a client for using Feature Flags for User Interface development. Service providers usually give a simple fetch and use client and that's it; I contend that there's a lot more to care about. Let's dive in.

To encourage usage, we'd like for the developer experience to be as brutally simple as possible. So, this should be valid usage:

Replacing Create React App with the Next.js CLI

Replacing Create React App with the Next.js CLI

How dare you make a jab at Create React App!?

Firstly, Create React App is good. But it's a very rigid CLI, primarily designed for projects that require very little to no configuration. This makes it great for beginners and simple projects but unfortunately, this means that it's pretty non-extensible. Despite the involvement from big names and a ton of great devs, it has left me wanting a much better developer experience with a lot more polish when it comes to hot reloading, babel configuration, webpack configuration, etc. It's definitely simple and good, but not amazing.

Now, compare that experience to Next.js which for starters has a much larger team behind it provided by a world-class company (Vercel) who are all financially dedicated to making it the best DX you could imagine to build any React application. Next.js is the 💣-diggity. It has amazing docs, great support, can grow with your requirements into SSR or static site generation, etc.

So why

Feature flags: why, how, all that

(I'm enjoying doing these raw, barely edited writeups; I hope they're useful to you too)

Feature flags

This is my own writeup on feature flags; for a deep dive I'd recommend something like Martin Fowler's article (

So. Feature flags. The basic idea that you'll store configuration/values on a database/service somewhere, and by changing those values, you can change the user experience/features for a user on the fly.

Let's say that you're building a new feature, called 'new-button' which changes the color of buttons, which is currently red, to blue. Then you'd change code that looks like this -
