The Elements of Tagless Final Style

Much has been said about tagless final style. It is variously dead, alive, or rising from the grave to wreak revenge upon its detractors.

All of these viewpoints have their merits, and to understand the discussion we must understand the various components it is built from and the various problems it is solving. In this talk Noel will break down tagless final to its elemental units and show how you can compose these units to solve different problems.
