Came across this on yt. Go take a break and carefully go watch it, it's important and it's good.

"Uncle" Bob Martin - "The Future of Programming" - youtube.com/watch?v=ecIWPzGEbF

"Gleam is a statically typed functional programming language for building scalable concurrent systems.

It compiles to Erlang and has straightforward interop with other BEAM languages such as Erlang, Elixir and LFE."
- github.com/lpil/gleam
- gleam.run/

I will widly claim that for about 92.3% of the time and cases we only need the following things in a language and nothing else:
- immutability only and always;
- product types and coproduct types (aka adts or sum types);
- only and always expressions, never statements;
- Single linked immutable Lists, Maps and Sets as the most complex data structures;
- functions as values, higher order functions, easy currying;
- unbounded numeric types;
- generics/parametricity;

New blog post available. Go get it while it's fresh ;)

Was creating an account in manning website because I wanted to check about buying the book with 50% discount code that is currently there, but it's not worth it for me. I can order from bookdepository for around the same price. A good thing I discovered is that the livebook and livevideo stuff they have on the site are freaking awesome.
