Structural Typing: Compile Time Duck Typing

Google’s Go programming language, a statically typed compiled language, has been called a modern, better C. It builds on C by adding features such as garbage collection, concurrency constructs, and user-defined class-like types. One missing feature is classical object-oriented inheritance. Instead, Go uses interfaces and structural typing. Structural typing is like compile time duck typing.

Better Cohesion with the Type Class Pattern

Encapsulation is often called the core of object-oriented programming. Data is bundled with the functions that operate on that data. However, too much behavior can lead to monolithic, incohesive classes. The type class pattern preserves a class’s core behavior but defines orthogonal behaviors externally. Type classes allow you to “extend” both user-defined and native classes
