In this talk, you will discover how the 15k LOC codebase was implemented with spec so you don't have to (but probably should). Validation; testing; destructuring; composable “data macros” via conformers; we’ve tried spec in all its multifaceted glory. You will discover a distillation of lessons learned interspersed with musing on how spec alters development flow and one’s thinking.

Simon built his first computer out of Lego bricks and learned to program soon after.
