    The Go programming language

  • Nim

    Nim is a statically typed compiled systems programming language. It combines successful concepts from mature languages like Python, Ada and Modula. Its design focuses on efficiency, expressiveness, and elegance (in that order of priority).

    Does anyone know the impetus for using [] in generics? I know Nim opted for the same syntax and I assume it has some parsing/tokenizing benefit like the switch to using “fn” a la Zig or Rust. However, the syntax seems needlessly ambiguous with array notation sharing the same operator. I know I’m not alone because I’ve seen others mirror my concerns in Nim.

  • Scout APM

    Less time debugging, more time building. Scout APM allows you to find and fix performance issues with no hassle. Now with error monitoring and external services monitoring, Scout is a developer's best friend when it comes to application development.

    > Was the try() proposal for Go error handling?

    Yes, it was the second proposal by the Go team for shorter error handling: https://github.com/golang/proposal/blob/master/design/32437-...

    > I'm really curious what happened to the proposals for shorter Go error handling

    The community didn't like it and it was declined:

  • vscode-gremlins

    Gremlins tracker for Visual Studio Code: reveals invisible whitespace and other annoying characters

    On VSCode, I use the Gremlins extension which highlight all those suspicious characters.


  • zio-prelude

    A lightweight, distinctly Scala take on functional abstractions, with tight ZIO integration
