Fast Software, the Best Software - On the benefits of speedy , and how it affects user perception of engineering and overall - by Craig Mod:

"Fastness in software is like great margins in a book — makes you smile without necessarily knowing why."

"I love software that [...] unbloats over time. This should be the goal of all software."

"Fast software gives the user a chance to “meld” with its toolset. That is, not break flow."

"The message that emerges from [Ai Weiwei's] work is that the truest resistance to the oppression of conformity is the riot of human diversity, the singular nature of the individual and their individual expression, the non-deterministic variability of things we—all of us—think and do and make. Difference is the seed value of our human process."

Cultural Revolutions - Freedom is not a goal, but a direction - by Edward Snowden:

Don't let anybody tell you that you can't do something. Never!

Although I'm not a programmer, this looks really cool:

Create desktop apps using Go and Web Technologies:

Yes, more UIs with please!💪

Urgh... is just 😘 🥰

You automatically _want_ to write the best documentation possible.

Thank you, community, for this awesome piece of technology!❤️

Wow, now has 60k stars on .🎉

Have a look at this graph:

It almost looks like exponential growth!😍 🦀

Finally a comparison with Rust that actually makes sense (yes, I look at you "Go vs. Rust people"🙄):

C++ Move Semantics Considered Harmful ( is better)

For all the people, who are praising Low-/No-Code tools, just ask them this simple question:

You: "How are you going to test this?"

LowCodeGuy: "We let our testers execute the app/software."

You: "So you are basically doing manual regression testing!? That's pretty expensive, don't you think? What about automated tests like unit tests?"

LowCodeGuy: *Error, can't ...compute...answer...🥴 😖 😵*

Wow, this combinator in looks awesome 😍
Chumsky - A friendly parser combinator crate

What really stands out: it has "powerful error recovery strategies" - parser combinators are usually not known for their good error reporting capabilities.

Also, best name ever for this kind of crate! 😉

tip ⚠️ :

Regularly search for the following codepoints in your source code:
U+202A, U+202B, U+202C, U+202D, U+202E, U+2066, U+2067, U+2068, U+2069

more context here:

Your source code don't need to be Rust to be affected by this vulnerability.
has fixed it in 1.56.1, though, so time to update if you can.

Strings are ugly! 😬

"Outperforming Imperative with Pure Functional Languages" by Richard Feldman: (or YT:

Richard Feldman and his team have worked on a pure functional language called roc ( It compiles to a static binary and uses and opportunistic in-place mutation for optimization.

Such a great talk! I ❤️ Richard Feldman!

Wow, that in there are not only `pub` and `pub(crate)` for specifying visibility of items, but there is also:
- `pub(super)`: item will only be visible to the parent module
- pub(in crate::foo): item will only be visible in module `foo`

🤯 :rust:

See this excellent blog post by Aloso, when you want to understand Rust's module system:

Mini "rant" again (sorry) 

Do you know in ? If not, lucky you!

I've *literally* searched for the following title in this reddit post and the reddit post was the first result in my search engine:

I don't need KWallet and I don't know how to disable it, even after reading the post. I don't even know what it's good for. Is it to store credentials/passwords? I use another tool for that.

I'm now even more inclined to switch to some other distro like Manjaro
