Turning 'wat' into why
YOW! Perth 2019
In this talk, take a tour through a multitude of programming languages; and see not only the ‘wat’, but the ‘why’: is it a misunderstanding based on an assumption from another programming language? A compiler optimisation? A known bug that can’t be fixed due to backward compatibility concerns? Attendees will come away from this talk with a greater understanding about how to turn a ‘wat’ into a ‘why’.
