The minutes of the local weekly Epigram meeting
Conor gave us a devloper-website-guided tour of the code as it exists today. Thorsten questioned the abstract style in which Conor programs and the merits of it were discussed. Looking at the code for the first time is a daunting experience as it is very terse and it is difficult to see what is going on. However it prevents the silly mistakes that are easily made in more concrete code where the plumbing is explicit. Conor pointed out that this code is the most recent of many iterations and that the way to understand it is to go through these iterations yourself.
