Hey Folks,

This month we have software engineer Nathan Frenette joining us remotely to talk about null!

"Null is considered a special value because its creators considered it special. Null has been considered a billion dollar mistake. I argue that the mistake is not null - but instead is the special treatment it gets. I see no reason to see it as special. We'll discuss the implications of assuming that null is not special."

Hope to see you there!
