Using the Rust linter, Clippy, for the first time. I am in love.
Any day I get to code exclusively in Rust is a good day. Could use it, today, as am otherwise feeling a little down.
This is an episode of The Command Line Podcast.
I talk about the how frustration can be effectively channeled by building surprising tools, for yourself and your fellow developers.

Tech friends: Of those considering themselves prog lang polyglots, how often do you honestly choose best vs. fave tool?
My tech friends: Are you a programming language polyglot? If so, what benefits do you realize? Drawbacks?
I love Lin Clark’s code cartoons, as much for her incredibly clear explanations as for her fearless choice of advanced and in-the-weeds topics. Her latest, a three part series delving into some new low level capabilities that will make concurrent and high performance programming more possible in the browser is no exception.
My newest open source project, a JWT library written in Rust, just hit 500 downloads. Not a lot but important to me.
This Wired article makes me think of @starstryder and helps me understand in retrospect why she and I have chatted so much about programming and tech over the years despite our very different fields. Given the data intensive nature of modern astronomy, this pressure to bring more capabilities from the realm of software development, from big data to machine learning, is hardly surprising. Kind of makes me want to find some volunteer opportunities to help where I can.
15.4K lines of code later, this new dev tool is done. Enough for now, anyway. Not sure why I needed to write it so badly, just did.
TFW your mad cackling at getting your code working invites trying to explain something that loses in the translation to non-coders.
