Unboxed union types with a context bound
View gist:3870064
* this is an experiment to create unboxed union types with a phantom type and a context bound.
* All the good ideas come from @milessabin post, comments and links:
/** trait for anything that can be A or B */
trait Or[A, B] {
// a phantom type, there will be no instance of this type that we'll use
type l[T]
// an alias for l[t]

Why functional programming matters to enterprise programmers

tl;dr: Solving a very specific problem using FP tends to produce a very general solution that's applicable to a wide range of problems.

Let's start with some Java code that we'll simplify using functional programming.

class Department {
  Employee getYoungestEmployee() {
    if (employees.isEmpty()) return null;
You can’t perform that action at this time.
