Operational Introduction to Algebraic Effects and Continuations

Algebraic Effects in JavaScript part 1 - continuations and control transfer

This is the first post of a series about Algebraic Effects and Handlers.

There are 2 ways to approach this topic:

  • Denotational: explain Algebraic Effects in terms of their meaning in mathematics/Category theory
  • Operational: explain the mechanic of Algebraic Effects by showing how they operate under a chosen runtime environment

Both approaches are valuables and give different insights on the topic. However, not everyone (including me), has the prerequisites to grasp the concepts of Category theory and Abstract Algebra. On the other hand, the operational approach is accessible to a much wider audience of programmers even if it doesn't provide the full picture.

throw pending.get(url);

It's now here, in The Programmer's Compendium. The content is the same as before, but being part of the compendium means that it's actively maintained.

A Common .ruby-version File For Ruby Projects

Background

I've been using this technique in most of my Ruby projects lately where Ruby versions are required:

  • Create .rbenv-version containing the target Ruby using a definition name defined in ruby-build (example below). These strings are a proper subset of RVM Ruby string names so far...
  • Create .rvmrc (with rvm --create --rvmrc "1.9.3@myapp") and edit the environment_id= line to fetch the Ruby version from .rbenv-version (example below).

Today I learned about another Ruby manager, rbfu, where the author is using a similar technique with .rbfu-version.
