What does a good code base look like? How can you tell if what you have is rockstar code, or terminal moraine, the detritus left by glaciers? (no apologies for the geology reference).

Law of Demeter, and something stricter. How about writing mapping methods that are pure? How can we tell that a mapping method is actually pure?

FunctionInterface, checked exceptions and wrapping them up neatly, if that's the sort of thing you like.

So tired of two factor auth not working well.  Mac mail works for two days before giving me an invalid password error, and system preferences just plain freaks out now.  Le sigh.  @Google can you please fix 2fa for mac users so it doesn't suck?

It just occurred to me today that in my most recent deployment, a brand new cloud service, we have encountered precisely zero bugs.  It's been running for a couple of weeks already.  We had a slight glitch with the BoneCP library, but it turns out it's a known issue so we had to code a small workaround that was causing disconnects maybe three times a day to throw exceptions.  Zaro Boogs.  Nil, nada, none.  Thank you Play/Scala for allowing us to write awesome code that doesn't break.  Like ever.

I wrote a blog post to talk about a couple of what I feel are very common dialogues: why can't Joe Bloggs be a programmer, and what is programming anyway?
