Yo Katamari I actually started with C! It was the most frustrating thing ever, but the moment I wrote code that worked I was like "WHOA I can tell this computer what to do!" I am still terrified of having to write code that close to the machine though. I was less afraid of C when I started than I am now lmao.
Also for Python, there's this really cool thing called uvloop using asyncio that puts Python up there with Go in terms of speed/concurrency. They even made a Flask-like web framework for it called Sanic, because it goes fast. I also contributed to their docs last year! Yay open source! But I have been kind of burned out on technology so I've not been keeping up as much. I think my chops are suffering for it because some basic shit that used to come second nature to me is starting to feel more difficult. I should start a new side project or something.
Anyway I just felt like I wanted to rant about technical stuff on theshizz because I haven't in a while.
