Programmer Bedtime Stories
Algorithms as Allegory… Hear the cautionary tale of "The Recursed Army," the mathematical mystery of how 16 cows become 14.9 in "the F.arm(er) and the GigaCow," the observer pattern helps a king navigate palace intrigue and royal succession in "King Floyd and the 17 Princes," and variable scope creates the locked room mystery "A gun, a dame, and a scope."
