  • zig

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

  • I had completed a functional programming course a few months prior and I was hyped for writing functional code with anything other than Lisp. I was in the mood for learning a new language at the time and the only "project" I had in mind was Savoir. To tell you how deep I went in my search for a “new shiny tool to use”, the other languages I was considering were Zig and Crystal.

    Allow startup developers to ship to production on day 1 (by commitdev)

  • Many "startup starting guides" or "startup in zero steps" guides recommend using no-code or zero setup frameworks to build your product. They recommend getting started as fast as possible, acquiring users, then thinking about the technical implications of your choices down the road. These are really good tips. In fact, I strongly recommend looking at frameworks like getzero to get started as fast as possible if you're a more technically oriented person. What most of these guides/frameworks omit is that you should probably already be proficient in the platform they recommend before you even start. Building an entire product on Bubble is more than possible, but in my case, I am a very technical person. My strength lies in building backends, APIs and DevOps workflows.

    The Crystal Programming Language

  • I had completed a functional programming course a few months prior and I was hyped for writing functional code with anything other than Lisp. I was in the mood for learning a new language at the time and the only "project" I had in mind was Savoir. To tell you how deep I went in my search for a “new shiny tool to use”, the other languages I was considering were Zig and Crystal.
