, that can lead to runtime errors in our code or bizarre bugs that take forever to track down because of type coercion. To battle this, we end up with code that is littered will conditionals for
values and type checks, making the core logic harder to read and refactor later.
encapsulates the type checking and guards against missing values for us. With
in our toolbelt, we can keep our functions free of all the guardrails, outsource that work to the
and keep our business logic free of all the clutter.
