Hey everyone. I just joined Mastodon after hearing about it on Mozilla's IRL podcast. This is my first post :) I'm a long time software dev running with .
Such a warm welcome! Thanks everyone!
@don Greetings traveller. Welcome to the Mastodon, make your self at home.
Thank you @jarlavgrenland 😺
Out of interest, what do you mainly write (language-wise)?
@Charged_Neon I like lots of 'em, but I spend most of my time in JS and TypeScript. I'm really diggin' Rust lately and am trying to carve out time to play with Elixir. My preference is a functional style. How 'bout you?
@don Cool! Very much the same - at work, I mainly write with JS, TypeScript, PHP, and a little Java. At home, I usually write with JS and PHP, and I'm planning to learn more about Ruby and Rust as my next languages to learn, then to cycle back to Python. Though I am a master of none!
Much the same - I prefer functional.
Though, most of my day job entails maintaining either a Java inheritance mess, or procedural PHP using sessions for credentials 😢
@Charged_Neon Nice! Ruby is really nice. I spent years using it just before NodeJS hit the scene. Any language that was created for "developer happiness" has to be great, right? 😺
Python is good too, but I'm convinced the more I learn about Rust the better I'll become as a dev. Something about it's ownership model really resonates with me.
