Looks like an interesting Book. With some interesting insights, like the speeding reading code chapter.

I'd like to read it ! I just failed the OCPJP 819 exam ( one of my weak points was not reading the code samples fast enough  ).

Nice to see you here Felienne. Interestingly I think we may have actually met in person a few years back when I was one of the organisers of the 2015 KatsConf conference in Dublin that you were a speaker at. It was all about functional programming and I remember it fondly especially for the late and wonderfully entertaining Joe Armstrong. And yourself of course.

Hello,

Congrats about the book's topic! I love all this forum thing, getting to know/chat also with the author.

I am really into the learning process, neuroscience fan. I am a programmer which started all over again 3 months ago after some ups and downs in life/career path.
I am also an avid reader, so this combination of programming + brain + book got me really excited!

There are a few questions in the rest of this forum.
 
Don't get me started about those stupid light bulbs.
