Pattern Matching

with one comment

Hm, I’m kind of starting to notice a repeating pattern in writing Scala code. It’s a very simple pattern: after the size of a source file reaches some notable size (like 100 lines or so, corresponding to some 500 lines of Java — or 5000, while at it…) I’m spending more time admiring the existing code than actually writing more of it. :) (… just being bluntly honest.) (Certainly, this has never happened with Java, in case you were thinking.) But, I’m still living the initial crush, so I must beg your forgiveness for my utter narcissism

Plus, beer & listening to Antony and the Johnsons may have something to do with this. Life’s good at times.

(And hey, despite the slacking, I’m still 250% more productive compared to Java; although, that figure is probably something like 1k due to increased happiness. (Non-leaky) Abstractions rule.)

I am very happy
So please hit me
I am very very happy
So come on hurt me

I’ll grow back like a Starfish
I’ll grow back like a Starfish
I’ll grow back like a Starfish
I’ll grow back like a Starfish
