Most of the western urban society lost its touch to the goriness and rawness of life
They hide what they don't like to acknowledge between works and shapes
Take for example the well known nugget: it's meat, but it's smashed, processed and reshaped beyond recognition. You could hardly link it to the animal of origin. You would be forgiven to think it was some kind of fruit if you wouldn't know any better.
That's because people prefer to forget they are eating living things. Steak comes already sliced and seasoned. Sausages come already minced and smoked.
It's a form of voluntary desensibilization from everything that we might find uncomfortable.
Blame corporation and their pRoPrIeTaRy shit formats
Everybody refuses to talk to each others or else god forbid they would risk losing their walled gardens
@Lensflare It's not about capability, it's about how well can you navigate the codebase and visualize the flow
Heavy OOP languages such as Java (at least a few years ago, now many things might have been improved) tend to have a lot of code where a big chunk is just boilerplate.
IDEs such as Intellij are overkill for putting together a few scripts, because they focus on providing the needed tools for more verbose languages
@localpost did it talk a lot about brain activity during the night? REM sleep and all that
I once reas a book about lucid dreaming and one of the main ideas in order to improve dream frequency and remembering is to write them down as soon as you wake up
Basically keep a notebook by your bed and as soon as you wake up write anything that you remember, in no particular order
After a few months, i started dreaming almost every other night (i don't have more than 1 dream per month at most usually) and writing them down took from forgetting 90% of them to remeber like 70%
@DEVil666 Are you guys paid by LoC by any chance? 😂
I was actually interested in this thread, but i had to downvote because all of those emojis
Please, tell us more about this paranoia driven development!!
What other instances have you met before?
@kamen Or really, just an SSD
Here is a great example of devRant community to help up with an issue
I guess we (as a species) are able to do as much good as evil
I just hope that the end of the day it evens out at least
Jokes on you, the user seems to have the best of times
The primary purpose of the platform is for devs to vent
It'a neither a Q&A forum nor an educational platform
That being said, it's possible to find help, tips and mentoring, but no promise of that is made and people might get jumpy if instead of good angry stories (ironically like this one, great job!) they get stack overflow style questions
@hitko Nobody shoves it down your throat, you can use it if you like or use somthing else
I get you idea, but i don't see anything bad in rewritting the wheel if it's just as good. Yeah is not productive, but most people do those projects in their free time, so productivity is not always an important metric
@dowhile Then this is the wrong parallel universe
You want to code but you are too new on the project => more meetings for ramp up and less coding
You want to code but you are too experienced on the project => more meetings to transfer knowledge to the newer guys
You want to code but the project is done or got unbearably beurocratic or boring => change job or project and repeat
@AvatarOfKaine it might work, it would be basically transpilation from a confy language to a safer, more performant one
But as in the case with everything, even traditional compilation, it's hard and extremely opinionated to do it
I don't think or say it's not possible, but what would be the trade-offs?
@AvatarOfKaine wasn't there a thingy about all people have 3 faces?
* how others see them
* how they see themselves
* how they really are
I guess we all are carefully building our first face by trying to hide the shortcomings of the second, but in the process we let only the worse of the third to be seen
Or i might be talking out of my ass, im not event sure anymore 😅
@scor Fingers crossed 🤞
@scor Maybe it will take Meta suite down with it as well
@jonas-w i am a bit out of the loop, what did trump buy?
@hitko People work on OSes for microcontrollers, game engines, virtualization solutions with Rust already
All are projects that benefit from memory safety
There is also the aspect of added thinking complexity: for instace, Go improves parallelization by implementing already known mechanisms as first class citizens in the language, simplifying and standardizing the code; on the other size, Rust adds constraints over the ownership of memory, so it forces devs to change the way of thinking
This friction might influence the addoption rate
Keep in mind that i can't code in Rust for my life, but i find its principles and value proposition valid enough to admire it
i predict he will make his own social media platform, subsidizes by gov and full of leaks, as always
Actually, he might just buy a smaller one, pump some money and take all the credit
It's something so chaotic, yet so human about your rants
i love em!
@hitko i get what you saying, but then maybe someone will do just that at some point
plus, many of the things written in Rust are still in their infancy, so there will be a long time till a big project like this will start, either by a company or by a person/group
But maybe after the language proves itself in the long term people will be interested in taking over m projects like this
In the end is just another lang, not a silver bullet
Not having memory issues is a good thing anyway
@hitko Not gonna argue, your examples are on point, but wasn't there that Amazon project, Firecracker written in Rust as well? I might be wrong, tho
Also, regarding GH examples, there are more than just those. Deno, mellisearch, multiple terminal emulators, i wouldn't say its nothing, plus, both are still young
What would need to be built with them in order to check all boxes? An OS? I think there is a kernel written in Rust in works as well so there is that 😅
Its true that it is championed by a small caste of developers, but really, is it bad? I mean, a lot of languages, frameworks and libraries are and remain for their entire existance
That is if there is no major breakout like becoming standard for something and becoming a viable career path in the industry with steady job offers
Rust is currently used in the industry for its safety approach alone, so there miggt be a future to it, considering that big shots like Amazon are investing, so maybe its not that bad
As long as the hardware industry will keep raising the offer of resources, the software industry will increse its demand
But this will likely stop at some point, either by hard limits in physics, or by running out of semiconductors, either way, we kind of fucked this up
@galena I'm actually really sorry for them if by then, this tool would still be needed 😥
Asynchrouns programming is still a mystery to a lot of people 😅
