1st Semifinal of the 2nd Programming Language World Championships!

Python advanced to this round with wins over Object Pascal, Fortran and Lisp, while Rust battled it out against Julia, Ruby and C++.

Who will make it to the big final?

@fribbledom you realize that some of us (me) don't know jack about this, and are just picking the ones with the coolest names, right? #Python

Funny video, but to be fair, pretty much any modern programming language has been created, because someone thought something was too hard to do in C/C++.

So, basically sysadmins and data scientists vs. software engineers.

@friend @fribbledom python is used for software engineering too! ^_^

@fribbledom I've never really used rust, but the whole Python 2.7-3.x debacle has left me less than happy. Also really looking forward to the redox-os being developed entirely in rust 😃

I'm currently having to learn Python for work and yeah, it's just crazy to me how you still have to check what version of Python is being described when looking up documentation.

I understand why they didn't do it, but at this point, I would've preferred, if they had given the new version an entirely different name, like "Serpent" or something, just so it's harder to read the wrong documentation.

@fribbledom Would have loved to see the #python vs. #rust duel in the final #plwc2020 round.

@fribbledom #rust #rustlang

All my fellow #rustacean #rustaceans lets win this!

Please #retoot for maximum visibility in your rust bubble, so we can win this!


Haven't planned for one, but sure, why not... let's do one.
