Programs are:

idealized components… not bound by degradation of use.

infinite complexity… because nothing is stopping us from building it.

Method signature is the first line of the method (e.g. def method_name(*arg))

Parameters are the adverbs. Parameters allow us to make a method dynamic.

To the computer, there is no difference between a local variable and a method.

’==’ => value equality ’===’ => object equality

A computationally efficient language will compile down faster than

lazy evaluation- the program will stop as soon as an if or elsif is satisfied. It won’t execute any more statements.
