really resonates with me.

1. Please use real-world code examples, especially in lectures and conference talks. All that "Cat extends Animal" jazz is bad at conveying meaning.

2. Good, small, real-world examples take time to write!

@ihabunek @b0rk Contrived examples never bothered me, I can have a high suspension of disbelief for those. But for one of my friends they seemed to be a big hinderance....

@wolf480pl I find them a moderate hindrance when learning something new. Having done some meetup/conference talks, I think many others have the same problem. Being able to apply the examples to a real world problem seemed to ease understanding.
