โญ๏ธ Answer to Last Week's Question
Last weekโ€™s question we posted a poll on Twitter!
Thanks to everyone who answered! Here are the results!
true, false, true is correct!
true, false, true is correct!
@theapache64 and @V9vek did a great job explaining the correct answer in the replies.
  • Getting map[1] returns the Foo(1) and Foo(1) is a Foo.
  • Getting map[0] returns null because there is no entry with that key and null is not a Foo.
  • Getting map[0] returns null but since null is a Foo? this returns true!
