How the heck does the kotlin compiler handle expressions with generics?
Interestingly this is a problem that popped up as recently as a year ago : https://github.com/JetBrains/kotlin/pull/4771
I think the parser lives in the psi module: https://github.com/JetBrains/kotlin/tree/master/compiler/psi/src/org/jetbrains/kotlin
Take a look: https://github.com/JetBrains/kotlin/tree/master/compiler

This is a getting-started article, so nothing much is needed as a prerequisite. But familiarity with Kotlin as a programming language, plus a basic understanding of Rest API and HTTP methods, would be helpful.
What's "language version 2.0"?
2 projects | /r/Kotlin | 31 Jan 2023
Stumbled across this Kotlin YouTrack issue that mentions adding "language version 2.0" to the IDE dropdown. Dug a bit and it seems recently, there was a commit to the 1.9 branch of the compiler that removes the -Xuse-k2 flag, instead associating the K2 toggle with the flag -language-version 2.0. Is there anything else known about this? Is the idea just "we don't really want to name a version 1.10, so after 1.9 we're calling the next one 2.0", or is K2 being used as a chance to make bigger changes that warrant a true 2.0 bump, or what? Or is this fully unknown at the moment? Haven't followed this closely enough to know if they've made previous comments about their plan for version numbering or not.

Yeah, something similar to "Killed by Google". Maybe we need a template on Github for such sites to catalog bullshit, lord knows there's a lot of categories of bullshit we can catalog...

Google has a lot of talent but it also has a history of misusing it's talent and abandoning projects that are halfway implemented. There is an entire website, Killed By Google which highlights 285 projects, tools, apps, and services Google has abandoned.
What big companies are overrated and why?

Google? Our lead innovator got so caught up in their own ass that they literally develop and expand nothing. Focus on new projects means they never have anything stable and anyone who uses their apps must remember that those can be killed at any moment. Their main product is advertisements now.2 projects | /r/AskReddit | 22 May 2023
It's certainly not hardware, they haven't innovated on phones in years. Their AI offering is a joke. They bin every interesting service ever, to the point where there is a meme website listing the google graveyard. Services that they haven't killed are getting worse, noticeably YouTube, and their cash cow, Search, is fucking awful and getting more unusable by the day. They're slashing and burning their userbase for quick and easy ad revenue instead of sowing the long term fields here.
