Scala Code Trollin’

So, we’ve all heard of “flatmap that sh**”, right? The new, functional, hipster way of saying

You’re doing it wrong

Since we don’t really care about dogma and functional religion that much, let’s just start trolling a little (it’s so much easier anyway), with Scala code. Check out the following piece of useful Scala code, which does compile:

def C = Seq(1, 2, 3)
def Windows = 0
def WAT = (C:\Windows)                                                           /* OK, we also need this */ (_)

Awesome, right? I leave it up to you to figure out what the above piece of code does.

Don’t believe it? Or don’t care about the puzzle? Here’s the solution on ScalaFiddle.

How to Behave on Mailing Lists

I recently stumbled upon the following document:
http://www.apache.org/dev/contrib-email-tips.html

It’s a useful list of rules, ideas about how to behave on open source mailing lists. Of course, these rules include both committers and users ;-)
