Look inside
Want a clever hack to up your object-oriented programming game? Treating classes as an extension of the type system gives you classes that are both easier to use and more predictable —as well as a bunch of other awesome advantages! Now, in Exploring Classes as Types you'll get your first glimpse into how this powerful technique can revolutionize the way you write code. All 100% FREE.

about the book

In Exploring Classes as Types, author and veteran web developer Matthias Noback has chosen content from three Manning books that explore this powerful technique. The first chapter showcases the numerous benefits that come with strongly typed code. Then, you'll drill down into different categories of objects and when and how to use them. Lastly, you'll zoom in on value objects, which are particularly well-suited to unit testing, and discover how they help to expand the "safe area" inside your application. With this laser-focused sampler, you'll be on your way to harnessing the power that treating classes as types offers!
