So, who's having a go at #adventofcode this year? Last year I participated for the first time using #elisp to solve the challenges. This year I'm hesitating.. kotlin, common lisp or maybe a language I have no prior experience with?
@neauoire@csepp@woozong no, it's just that for a while I wanted to check out collapseos, and I saw some action on mastodon. Not much considerations at all.
"A more standard forth" sounds arcane to me, since I feel like forth-like things currently only exist as a way to program CollapseOS and some cryptocurrencies. And I'd much rather program CollapseOS :D
@neauoire@eris@csepp@woozong when I believed in Bitcoin, I wrote a fair share of BitcoinScript, which is heavily inspired by Forth, AFAIU. Same goes for Tezos VM language, which is also based on Forth.
@edd well, we have been gradually migrating our entire java-backend (on spring boot) into kotlin at work. Still a wee bit to go, but it has been a joy and breath of fresh air. That's why I'm thinking of maybe trying pure kotlin.
