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.
It's 2023, so of course I'm learning Common Lisp

You can kind of do the same as DISASSEMBLE in Clojure.
It isn't as straightforward as in Lisp, but it is nonetheless doable.
SIMD accelerated sorting in Java – how it works and why it was 3x faster

If you use Oracle's own IDE, it will support it out of the box, as it already did on Sun's days.
Then there are other ways depending on which JVM implementation is used.
On OpenJDK's case you can load runtime plugin to do it
Compiler Explorer - Java support

We use https://github.com/AdoptOpenJDK/jitwatch for this.
Why Zig When There Is Already C++ and Rust?

If you already know any JVM or .NET language, the first step would be to understand the full stack, you don't need C for that.
Many of us were doing systems programming with other languages before C went mainstream.
What you need to learn is computer architecture.
Getting back to JVM or .NET, you can get hold of JIT Watch, VS debug mode or play online in SharpLab.
Get to understand how some code gets translated into MSIL/JVM, and how those bytecodes end up being converted into machine code.
Languages like F# and C# allow you to leave the high level comfort and also do most of the stuff you would be doing in C.
Or just pick D, which provides the same comfort and goes even further in low level capabilities.
Use them to write a toy compiler, userspace driver, talking to GPIO pins in a PI, manipulating B-Tree data stuctures directly from inodes, a TCP/IP userspace driver.
Not advocating not to learn Zig, do it still, the more languages one learns the better.
Only advocating what might be an easier transition path into learning about systems programming concepts.
