This page summarizes the projects mentioned and recommended in the original post on reddit.com/r/ProgrammingLanguages

Our great sponsors
  • InfluxDB - Access the most powerful time series database as a service
  • SonarQube - Static code analysis for 29 languages.
  • SaaSHub - Software Alternatives and Reviews
  • zig

    General-purpose programming language and toolchain for maintaining robust, optimal, and reusable software.

    correction: zig does not have a built-in, special hash table. Both ArrayHashMap and HashMap are implemented in the standard library.
