    I'm afraid I would fall short in the area of obsessive study of Microsoft® Teams and Product lines. I prefer a much more balanced approach and would end up asking much more pointed questions that would actually have the curious side effect of improving your products.

    I listened to the audio version of this video...maybe that was a mistake.

    It is interesting to see what they consider "safe" and "unsafe", but wouldn't the scope and type of a variable inherently limit the extent of its "side effects"? And the same with functions? Perhaps a better definition of "safe" is in order.

    I should note I have never programmed in Haskell, but it looks intriguing.
