Wrap up

Recorded – watch the full episode on YouTube.

Paul Hudson: Thanks very much for your time, Daniel.

Daniel Steinberg: My pleasure.

Paul Hudson: We've mentioned that you have a new book on functional programming. Perhaps you could just briefly mention it?

Daniel Steinberg: My books have become kickstarts, which means you're smart, you just want to get going quickly. Although someone observed that if I'm teaching a book on X, I often start on something that doesn't seem related at all to X and I work my way in. We start with magic. It's called A Functional Programming Kickstart and it's available on Gumroad. Or if you come to my site,, there's a link there.

Paul Hudson: Awesome. And where can folks find you on Twitter?

Daniel Steinberg: Everything I do online is Dim Sum Thinking. So you can find me there.

Paul Hudson: So many folks asked me about the meaning behind “TwoStraws”, what’s behind “Dim Sum Thinking”?

Daniel Steinberg: So when I was starting a company, I didn't want a company that was Daniel Steinberg X. And I was doing Java but I thought I won't always do Java, so I didn't want it to be Java-related. And so I wanted to imply like a dim sum meal – you can order little things and together they make a delightful meal.

Paul Hudson: I went for Hudson Heavy Industries, because I just I didn't want anything smart or clever. I wanted something to make people laugh. That was it.

Daniel Steinberg: I think that's both smart and clever.

Paul Hudson: It was either that or “Second Straw” or something, something a bit linked in there as well. Anyway, again, thanks for your time. And thank you to everyone who asked questions – it’s lovely having you here.

Until next time, take care folks!
