Data exploration with PowerQuery

Microsoft’s PowerQuery is a neat tool that allows one to perform SQL-like operations on Excel tables. When investigating a database, I actually prefer using PowerQuery over raw SQL for a couple reasons: PowerQuery displays result sets that are much easier to look at than the a typical SQL plaintext result set.

The convention is this: given a no-arg function, you use put parentheses next to the function call only if the function has side effects.

An abstract take on the dependency injection pattern

This article will take a relatively abstract look at the design pattern called dependency injection (or inversion of control). I feel that most articles about dependency injection get too bogged down in the particulars of whatever example is being used to demonstrate the structure.
