Episode #586
Don’t Use Greater-Than

So I was at a conference in Nashville recently, and I watched Llewellyn Falco do a lightning talk about, of all things, why you should never use the “greater than” operator while programming. And by the end of it, all I could think of was: I have got to get this guy on RubyTapas. Happily, he agreed to be on the show!

I’m not going to try to do any more setup for this one, other than to say that it’s a great example of how small choices in coding style can have big implications for comprehension. Enjoy!
