To most programmers, generics are used rarely. Most commonly to create singletons or containers. But they can be incredibly powerful and performant tools to solving complex tasks faster, with simpler code or in ways not otherwise possible.

In this talk we will go on a rapid journey from the most basic applications of generics, to how to implement advanced generic functionality all while avoiding the pitfalls many incorrectly assume are part-and-parcel of using generics.

Practical takeaways will be a knowledge of how to build simple to advanced generic code patterns and when they are useful (as well as when they are not). The talk is mostly aimed at intermediate to advanced programmers but not to the exclusion of beginners
