As Alan Perlis said: “It is better to have 100 functions operate on one data structure than 10 functions on 10 data structures.” In this session, we will see how if we represent every thing as simple data, from our DBs to the UIs, our programs can become simpler, our abstractions more generic and our code more reusable.

In essence, any program only does one thing: move data from one place to another, usually transforming the data on its way. But even if data is data, we tend to hide it in layers and layers of specific APIs and specialized types, where we lose the benefits of one single and unified API.
