Change of plans and priorities

As my selection of what to learn grows, I think there will be a change of plans and priorities. It's time to narrow down what is essential.

Currently, I am learning Rust, and will do some Go. This added more and more of my to-do list of learning things.

And it became unproductive§

My attention span on learning stuff were getting lower and lower to a point, I need to reassess which and which are not to learn.

Here are the list of things I need to do

  • Setting aside System Administration
  • Setting aside Kanidm
  • Setting aside Crystal

They're really not set aside. I can go back to them in the future if I have the time.

Crystal is good, why not keep it?§

Sadly, only a few companies I know use Crystal. 😥 Even though it's actually a more useful language to learn and can replace Go.

Now what should I learn§

Rust will always stay. Erlang will stay. Go is added. Python will be revisited. And one database? I'm planning to at least learn one but never got the chance to. Possibly, Postgres or MySQL.

Why Erlang?§

Concurrency. Also, some of Go's ideas are taken from Erlang so I also need to check those as well.

Why Python?§

It's not hard to relearn. I just need to revisit it. It's good for scripts and prototyping.

Why Rust?§

Because blazingly 🚀🚀🚀 fast 😜

What now?§

Yes. I am going to watch Learn Go in 3 hours from a Humble Bundle I got last year. And then read Thorsten Ball's Writing an Interpreter in Go. I will check out Erlang's language reference too ☺️

Why People are Angry over Go 1.23 Iterators

NOTE: This is based on, but completely rewritten, from a Twitter post: https://x.com/TheGingerBill/status/1802645945642799423 TL;DR It makes Go feel too “functional” rather than being an unabashed imperative language. I recently saw a post on Twitter showi…
