I just got a taste of some pattern matching in Scala. It was not really like what I had scene in Elixir or Haskell, but seems straight forward enough. In this case we match on some String attributes:
What made it slightly awkward, I guess, was the have to explicitly use the "match" keyword to say "I'm going to match here", but use the full class name and attributes. I guess it is just a bit "weird" to my eyes. There very well may be slicker ways to do this when I get into the more "hard core" FP techniques that I assume I will see in this book (or another).
All in all, I'm still enjoying Scala and this is just another thing to file away in the Scala portion of my brain.
