@notfin:matrix.orgnotfin Have you used castle engine polyT ? 19:55:47
@stany:matrix.orgpolyTno, I have not.. I came across it in my search for a crossplatform language for -all round use- As the fun is gone in building web-apps, I was lookin for an alternative. My first take on (free)Pascal an Lazarus(ide) was the same as yours, but it seems/appears that there is a tight community using Freepascal & Lazarus. I can not conf. this.. But would like to be sure that the language won't -die- in the next decade 20:20:25
@stany:matrix.orgpolyT(Else I rather spend my time on picking up an other language)22:43:08

@thor:thorjhanson.comthorI'm very young in my career, but my first job was writing Golang (I have an electrical engineering degree but got a software job with very little software experience, they really were taking a chance with my and I'm thankful for it). I wrote Go there for close to two years, really liked the job and the language. Really wanted to get into embedded dev tho and get some C and C++ experience, not so much for the languages but just cuz I'm interested in embedded dev (partially from my EE background). Recently got a job writing C and C++ at a small company doing embedded work, really enjoying it so far. I can definitely say I still love Golang though; it feels like a cross of C and Python and just hits all the right notes imo.03:11:46

@notfin:matrix.orgnotfin I'd be curious to know if you've heard of or used tinygo?

@thor:thorjhanson.comthorI have heard of it, but never used it.13:35:33
@sharkyza:matrix.orgsharkyzaI'll have to try a hello world in tinygo 😁13:43:10
@lil5:matrix.orglil5 GoLang is the reason I’ve be fairly resistant to using rust it’s safe enough to forget about php and so simplistic 17:18:51
@stany:matrix.orgpolyTisn'19:45:41
@stany:matrix.orgpolyTIsn't it controled/owned by Google?19:46:26
@stany:matrix.orgpolyTGo or GoLang, is there a difference?19:47:09
@wshanks:matrix.orgWillNo difference. Golang is easier to search for20:36:34
@stany:matrix.orgpolyTsomewhere I did hope it was a foss version, tot. independend of Google21:04:38

It is but it’s also licensed under BSD and has it’s source code available.

And some of my favorite projects are written in GoLang too; Hugo, SyncThing.

@Mollyart:matrix.orgmollyarthi, in case someone from the podcast is now actually here i'd like to say thank you. i really like it for the relaxed and calm energy and for missing out the attention economy bullshit. also i feel this is well reflected in the intro and outro which became relaxing to me on it's own.08:40:40
