Our mission is to build and nurture a thriving community of Software Developers in St. John’s by providing a place to connect, share new ideas, and learn from each other. NDev features monthly tech talks from members of the software development community that will always be free to attend. We encourage anyone interested in software development regardless of skill level to join, attend one of our Meetups, and meet new friends and mentors! Feel free to join us on Slack as well at http://slack.ndev.co/
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!
