NWA DNUG: Devlin Liles "Intro to Intermediate Generics"

Main Presentation

Title: Intro to Intermediate Generics

In this talk we start with the basic uses and details of generics, assuming no foreknowledge of generics. This will take us through what generics are, what they mean to the compiler, and how they can be leveraged. We will progress to more advanced uses and finish by writing a point of sale example using generics to save time and code. This will take us through writing our own generic functions, actions, predicates, and applying constraints to give type based member access inside the generics.
