    This year I've been attempting Advent of Code in my favourite programming language, F#. This is a beginner(ish) centered post about making incremental changes from the smallest possible solution to something more robust.
  • The comeback of the Fediverse and the Old Web

    I have many less followers on Mastodon than in the Birdsite (40 vs 341), yet my activity has generated many more interactions than there. Not only that, among the users who decided to interact with me I counted: a co-discoverer of the Laniakea supercluster, one of the lead developers behind F#, the author of many important books on Java & JVM, plus many others. I'm literally a nobody, but this time there was no algorithm relying on relevance and engament metrics to decide what to present to each one of us.

    FP devs differ based on language here. Elm, like F#, tends to encourage "a bunch of functions and types in a file". While Elm supports modules, we don't really care where it came from; they're all pure, all deterministic, the compiler tells us if it works.
  • Performance of immutable collections in .NET
    4 projects | reddit.com/r/dotnet | 23 Jul 2022
    The builtin fsharp collections actually are just "immutable", not persistent as you mention. (Ref: https://github.com/fsharp/fsharp/blob/master/src/fsharp/FSharp.Core/map.fs. This is just an AVL tree that returns a copy on mutations: https://github.com/fsharp/fsharp/blob/577d06b9ec7192a6adafefd09ade0ed10b13897d/src/fsharp/FSharp.Core/map.fs#L118)

    You can dive into .NET ecosystem by trying F#. It's functional-first language so this should be familiar.
  • Parsing Lambda Error Logs in ReScript & Python
    19 projects | dev.to | 28 May 2022
    ReScript code is just like F# or OCAML; it doesn’t have a function parse phase like JavaScript, so we have to define our functions and types first before we can use them. That’s fine, but makes explaining the code backwards (meaning you start at the bottom of the file and work your way up), so we’ll start at our lambda handler and explain each part, regardless of where it’s defined.
