  • cant

    A programming argot

    I've used my own hobby language Cant before, for a couple reasons: it's meant to be enjoyable to code in (at least for me), and tackling random problems like this is a good way to drive some improvements to it.

  • carbon-lang

    Carbon Language's main repository: documents, design, implementation, and related tools. (NOTE: Carbon Language is experimental; see README)

    I've been digging into hardware, embedded dev, microcontrollers etc. recently and want to keep going, so definitely a systems language. I learnt Rust via last years AoC but it felt too complex for speed & comfort the way Python does. Also most existing code or libraries in the space are written in C and I've heard Zig is much better at FFI. Or maybe even Carbon?


    ONLYOFFICE Docs — document collaboration in your environment. Powerful document editing and collaboration in your app or environment. Ultimate security, API and 30+ ready connectors, SaaS or on-premises

    Advent of Code challenge solutions (by flwyd)

    Perl was the first language I learned well, and I did 2021 in Raku. I really wanted to like it. The grammars were pretty neat. Unicode operators make the code look nice. Complex numbers are a nice built-in for doing 2D grid problems. Set and multiset features were seductive. Fluent list methods are swell. I even implemented day 10 with Unicode string properties.

  • nalintmo

    National Lisp Interpreter Month

    Then there was the programmer inspired by NaNoWriMo to create nalintmo, implementing Lisp in a different language each day of November.
