Discussion on: A compiler is She/Her? 🤔

Not to preach about Rust but have you seen their compiler messages? they are glorious!, it even gives you multiple suggestions on how to fix the problem and you can even ask it for an explaination of the problem with examples, a full explanation like what you would expect from a tutorial or book. So far always points exactly the right problem. I must say, the compiler is very slow tho (altough getting faster with each new version). But the compiler and the linter is very smart, even giving you suggestion on how to make the code more efficient not only warning about unused variables and that superficial level, it even gives you suggestions on how to take advantage of lazyness of some operation.
