Stars - the number of stars that a project has on GitHub. Growth - month over month growth in stars.
Activity is a relative number indicating how actively a project is being developed. Recent commits have higher weight than older ones.
For example, an activity of 9.0 indicates that a project is amongst the top 10% of the most actively developed projects that we are tracking.
We haven't tracked posts mentioning Hamsters yet.
Tracking mentions began in Dec 2020.
Going into year 2 of Software Development Foundation Degree, have a particular liking for OOP and SQL, any tips, info or pointers on where to go from there?

I'm sorry, but have you ever done functional programming for a real company, like in a functional programming language like Haskell, Scala, or F#? Have you ever used Scala cats or scalaz? Have you ever learned category theory and how to apply its abstractions in software? Listen u/judethedude2106 this person hasn't gone as far down the functional programming rabbit hole as I have. Beyond learning the basics like the difference between pure and impure functions, what are closures, what higher order functions are and the most common ones like .map, .filter, and .flatmap, the immutable collections like immutable linked lists and trees, and what a Monad is and common monads like those used for futures/promises, async programming, and Option (Some or None, which is used instead of null checking), the more advanced functional programming stuff like category theory based abstractions are totally useless for real jobs and is just a giant time suck. Don't waste years on functional programming, spend at most a few months on it and no more.

If I managed to gain you interest you can take a look at one of the following libraries like cats, scalaz for scala and vavr for java which contain type class definitions and implementations for common types.
In Search of the Best Functional Programming Back-End: 2021 Update
4 projects | dev.to | 24 Jan 2021
I’ve specifically had 2 job offers internally at my company because of this language. First with Cats and Scalaz and now with ZIO, Scala has taken the best parts of Haskell, the best parts of Scala, and made it really nice to work with. You can barely see the OOP leftovers.
What are some alternatives?
cats - Lightweight, modular, and extensible library for functional programming.
Shapeless - Generic programming for Scala
Monocle - Optics library for Scala
ScalaTest - A testing tool for Scala and Java developers
Ammonite-Ops - Scala Scripting
better-files - Simple, safe and intuitive Scala I/O
Chimney - Scala library for boilerplate-free, type-safe data transformations
Twitter Util - Wonderful reusable code from Twitter
refined - Refinement types for Scala
Persist-Logging - Scala Logging Library
scribe - The fastest logging library in the world. Built from scratch in Scala and programmatically configurable.
