[.NET@night] 'Specifiying Story Problems' by Chad Brewbaker at Gravitate March 10th, 2016 sponsored by Beacon HIll

Specifiying Story Problems

Specifiying Story Problems We will take 8th grade story problems and turn them into program specifications. Basic abstractions like sums, products, exponenents, function composition, and simple derivitives will be covered. First in math equations like we learned in 8th grade, then in Haskell notation to tease them into an executable spec. The same operations we learned in math class will be used to refactor our code. At the end of the talk we hope that when you hear "TDD" you think "Type Driven Development". By using precise types we simplify our code eliminating whole classes of potential bugs.
