How I tackled a hard problem in a new language
March 6, 2023
I’ve just started a lot of new things in my life; programming Scala (and Python), data engineering and a new client.
Luckily the things we have built until now is algorithmically pretty simple and … what was that? Calculate the what-now temperature?! The wet-bulb temperature? Wash your mouth with soap, young man! What on earth is that?!
And you want me to write this in Scala?! This is horrible.
In this blog post I’ll walk you through my thinking and application of experience to write one of the most complicated calculations I’ve ever put into a program, in a programming language that I’ve never seen 2 months ago.
It actually took me all of 1 hour to get this to work - and still be confident that it works.
