Lavrov? Is that you?
I've experienced an airline losing my luggage, but I haven't experienced death yet.
Maybe I'm immortal :)
This could end up on the pile of complaints.
You can do it, but it becomes tedious to write all that boilerplate as your data model grows.
> or, something like Elm's record updating syntax
I'm confused. How is Elm's record updating syntax related to aliasing?
FWIW, Elm also doesn't have a nice way to update nested record fields, and there are lens libraries in Elm to deal with the same problem.
I fucking hate Jira

Not much recent activity though.
I’m personally not a fan of it, but it seems unfair to label it as “very wrong”. I prefer that people have the freedom to make design choices like this.

Of course it's just a title, and titles are often mostly meaningless, but it strikes me as odd to label oneself a CTO without much professional programming experience to speak of.
Perhaps I am confused or we are talking about different things and consequently talking past each other, but I can literally open a new AWS/GCP/Hetzner/DO account, plug the credentials into my local configuration (in code), and then run a command with NixOps to provision an entire network of machines with custom specifications, and to automatically install all the software I need on those machines.
Perhaps you aren't familiar with what NixOps and similar tools can give you?
Self-hosting and infrastructure-as-code aren't mutually exclusive.
My argument is essentially that as the language has become more complex, it has become harder for more junior colleagues (and actually most programmers) to use the language effectively.
Do you buy the idea that a language might be better if it were designed to guide the user towards success? Or do you think it’s better to just throw everything possible into the language, warts and all?

I know what a stream is, and I know the W3C is. What is a “w3c stream”?
> Everything has only gotten better, from my perspective.
Would you accept the idea that the language has actually gotten worse? What would it take to convince you?
> Don't you find it odd to use another language just for a missing language feature?
No. Why do you?
For a language to not try and have all the features it possibly can is a feature.
Looks like programmers wish their favourite language would adopt their new favourite feature right after they've just learned how to use it. Sure, it makes the language you use more sophisticated, but at the cost of raising the bar for everyone else to learn that language.

I think it’s worth pointing out inaccuracies like this when they are shared by someone who is clearly engaging in whataboutery and the spread of misinformation across several comments in this thread.
