Choosing my next paper

These are the topics I'm interested the most in CS right now:

  • lazy evaluation
  • out of the tar pit concepts (no state, no control, simplicity uber alles)
  • higher order functions in modules, modules to abstract problems, lazy evaluation as the glue for modules interop

It should be about lazy evaluation, a thorough explanation with some actual examples would be great.

The Birth & Death of JavaScript

Didn't get the point. Closed around 50%.

Type systems will make you a better JavaScript programmer

http://jaredforsyth.com/type-systems-js-dev/#/

Which has a nice tl;dr IMHO:

If you have any complex data objects, write out the types before you dive into coding.

They basically advice to use Flow but I don't think it's the solution, possibly because I find the result to involve too much clutter.

Notes

I started working on a way to have notes along with the book text, so that it's easy for the reader to go through the contents keeping with him whatever functions they want from the previous sections / chapters, just by pasting them into this area.
