Hey. I haven't posted much in a while. Wanted to pass along a photo of my nanoreef, three years in.

For anyone who hasn't found this yet, a new Star Trek Continues is up.

I designed a mug.

- This mug is a true polyglot -- holds 20oz of any mug-compatible liquid.
- Full stack architecture incorporates back-end ("liquid-container") and user-facing UI/UX ("handle") functionality.
- Clean, artful "hacker" design is specifically appeasing to programmer ego.

Order now! Your support will help to perpetuate future acts of useless procrastination!

cider-nrepl, clojure.tools.nrepl, refactor-nrepl, lein-cljsbuild, figwheel, lein-figwheel, figwheel-sidecar, piggieback, weasel, ...

All the middleware involved to get a useful #ClojureScript #emacs #cider repl really seems painful.

Is Polyglot Programming Practical?

I agree that it mostly isn't. I also like the statement that you can be proficient in no more than 1.5 languages at a given time. I also happen to know a bunch of languages quite well, but at any given time jumping from one to another (outside the current 1.5) requires a lot of googling around. E.g. when I now look at some older Python code of mine, I recognize that it takes more time to get back into it than e.g. an older Clojure code bae.

If you haven't looked at CIDER for a while, the shiny, new docs have much broader coverage of features and, as well, do a better job of introducing the environment to new users

My first open-source #clojure library recently hit 10,000 downloads on clojars. Pretty exciting!

Looking back, there are always things you feel like you'd implement differently, but I'm glad if this has turned out to be useful to some folks. 🤓

I just wanted to pass this along. I've had a Mac mini server colocated with these guys for a few years now, and the service is really quite good. I also use EC2 and linode KVM hosts for various purposes, but there are a number of advantages to this service. First, you get a real Mac GUI "desktop" in the cloud. You also get your own private hardware. And, if you look at the cost, for $69 a month you get quad core with 16GB ram, which is considerably less expensive than a comparable 8GB Linode ($80/month).

Sorry if this is spam -- I don't have any relationship with macminicolo other than as a satisfied customer.
