Sisters

“I believe that children are our future. Teach them well, and let them lead the way…” – Whitney Houston

After an evening of library time, Daddy’s Crossfit, and a Lacrosse pickup, my two girls, Zoe (the oldest) and Lydia were tired and hungry. During a quick evening meal of leftover lasagna, I popped open the laptop to work on a quick kata, when my oldest asked “Whatcha doin’?”

Zoe’s interest in my work is rare, so I happily showed her some of my F# test code. She looked around. Even asked a few questions.

So I popped open the FSI and showed her how stuff works.

val zoe : string = "awesome"

> zoe = "not awesome";;
val it : bool = false

She was pretty happy that Zoe != “not awesome”.

I gave her her own FSI to try out, and I happily present to you, the very first code in what I’m sure is a very long lucrative functional programming career.

I guess sisters will be sisters.
