Browsing this instance for just 2 days and already feeling urges to make art with math functions, compose synthwave music, design sleek minimalistic websites, speak Japanese, hack a mainframe, and wear black and white clothes ALL AT THE SAME TIME. Curse you, !

@xvw @neauoire I work in a .NET shop, so F# is the obvious choice 😉

For hobbyist programming I use Rust.

@xvw @neauoire I completely agree.

In my article I note that TypeScript is good for what it is, but I much prefer languages like F#, Rust, or Haskell.

@neauoire I just realized this statement can be interpreted two ways.

Do you mean an optional type system (like TypeScript)?

Or do you specifically mean optional types (like string? or Option<string>)?

I think it would be cool if browsers supported TypeScript out of the box without needing to compile to JavaScript first.

I wrote up some thoughts about my desire for strong type systems in frontend development. I'll be exploring these thoughts more in further entries.

@lethalbit Saaaaame. Do I just want to engross myself in video games?

@ckipp Thanks! I’m glad you enjoyed it. And I’ll have a look at the 404s.

I've been thinking a lot about technical excellence in software development lately, so I decided to write up my thoughts on the matter.

One of the cool things about upgrading to 2.7.3 means we have very nice hashtag pages now. Check out the lovely work you all have been doing in ! merveilles.town/tags/theWorksh

Oh, reminder!! I'm going to be upgrading the Merveilles instance to the latest version of Mastodon today. You may see some visual glitches and may briefly be unable to connect. I'll let you all know once I'm all done! :3

Revisiting my website for the umpteenth time. Hoping to do some more writing this year 🙂

@_discovery @neauoire Forget Wren, Janet should be the built-in scripting language for luxe 😉

Phrases I've used tonight that I probably shouldn't have now include "Hella memcopies"
