    A safe, easy systems 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).

    I don't see the point of such a language. For more modern non-vm languages there already is https://nim-lang.org/ and https://dlang.org/ that target multiple platforms natively and are more or less established. Though maybe native interop with rust could be the selling point as rust has already a nice ecosystem of crates/libraries, but then, why not use rust?

  • 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.
