I'm incredibly happy to finally be able to talk about this wild thing I've been apart of building for 4 years!
@cwebber I think about these things too. We might be in the same line of business!
I find that some programming languages make immutability and change more difficult than others. I like those that happily support returning a new copy with a value that differs from the original, and leave it to us to discard that original. Or keep it. So we can undo an unwanted change.
My other kid will bring home books from their school's book fair today. I wonder what books I'll see. Emerging readers with a low attention span can run across a wide range of topics.
As a side note: it saddens me that these fund-raisers are necessary to keep school activities running, and to buy school supplies. I pay my share of taxes. Our combined taxes should cover the school's budget a-plenty. Who in their right mind low-balls the budget for primary schools?
@juliobiason Yes, I agree that's a weird-looking API design. Did the designer forget that HTTP verbs exist, when they thought up the endpoints?
One reason I love working in tech is that programming skills are valued in many different domains. I've worked in marketing, social media, finance and fashion.
It requires grace (you don't want https://xkcd.com/793/) but you can explore fascinating fields.
The more I work in web development, the more I conclude that the majority of web teams are just not skilled/disciplined enough to build an SPA when a static site will do.
Static sites do not have to worry about:
- memory leaks
- the back button / history
- scroll state
- focus state
- page lifecycle (tab freezing/unfreezing)
SPA frameworks should come with a "you must be this tall to ride" sign.
I don't mean this in an elitist/exclusionary way. I think it's a bit irresponsible that coding schools and bootcamps start people off by teaching them React/Angular/etc. It's as if you took a woodworking shop and they're like, "OK day one, you will architect an entire five-story building and build it from scratch."
@musicmatze Nice for me though: it's through people like you who share their work that I can learn more about Rust.
