10:58 xenophanes can anyone recommend a book/language to help me get out of sloppy coding habits?
10:58 ttmrichter xenophanes: What are your specific bad habits?
10:58 xenophanes ttmrichter: I tend to not utilise the language fully and often add unnecessary complexity through conditional loops
10:59 xenophanes i use a lot of list comprehensions
10:59 ttmrichter Which language?
10:59 xenophanes python
10:59 ttmrichter Learn a relatively pure functional language.
10:59 ttmrichter SML, say.
10:59 xenophanes have you studied that language?
11:00 ttmrichter I've used it, yeah.

11:11 eMBee challenge yourself, try to work a day without using any conditionals
11:12 eMBee not using conditionals is one of the challenges of the "code-retreat"
11:12 eMBee http://coderetreat.org/
11:12 fedaykin "Coderetreat - Honing the craft together worldwide"
11:12 xenophanes I briefly studied Beginner Student Language and Intermediate Student Language which are part of the Racket family
11:14 xenophanes checking out the activity catalog at the moment
11:14 ttmrichter eMBee: That's easy!  Use Prolog.  :)
11:16 xenophanes "No naked primitives" does that mean nothing like Int, String, Boolean?
