Discussion on: Say yes to Deno?

I went through the syntax the base setup and while I like everything , I'm going to wait for a few more major releases before I start using it in prod.

The same applies for a lot of languages that I wish to try.
There's V , deno, even nim.

Though in case of nim , a lot of programmers already consider it a primary language, i think it'll get even more stable and i'm just waiting for that before I dive into it.

I've actually never tried nim, but now I'm very curious to give it a shot.

I wanted to try nim because of my requirement to build GUI apps and that's one languages that's kinda aiming towards being able to build customized native apps without configuring a lot.

As for V, the same reason applies and the developer has built a lot of things using V, there's a github alternative, there's a few compilers, tools, a package manager, the language's compiler itself is partially in V. So i'm rather impressed at the developer's work and wish to use it soon. Following that language quite closely, should probably help him but I really have 0 idea about actually writing compilers, could help him in the github alternative

That sounds like an interesting project to work on and contribute to. Best of luck in your efforts! Writing language compilers is interesting. I used to work with blockchain VMs and had to interact with their languages on the opcode level. Interesting stuff.

It definitely is.

Very interesting. May be we should write articles about V and nim.

I, personally, am waiting few more major releases for Deno. I also want to have stable standard libraries.
