  • mlatu

    A declarative concatenative programming language

    Caden Haustein has used the code for Kitten as the starting point for a language called Mlatu, which looks cool. I haven’t been writing about my PL work much, but I’ve still been doing stuff that’s related—although it may end up under a new name, not sure what I want to do with that yet.

  • Monocypher

    An easy to use, easy to deploy crypto library

    Dynamic typing is tolerable for short programs, and I do use Python on occasion for those (the most substantial example is taking advantage of its bignum arithmetic to test out cryptographic algorithms). For anything bigger it just does not work, and God help you if you need to perform substantial refactoring.

  • InfluxDB

    Power Real-Time Data Analytics at Scale. Get real-time insights from all types of time series data with InfluxDB. Ingest, query, and analyze billions of data points in real-time with unbounded cardinality.
