programming-language-subreddits-and-their-choice-of-words - How do the different communities talk?

  •        7

While reading about various programming languages, I developed a hunch about how often different languages are mentioned by other communities and about the average conversational tones used by relative members. To examine if it was just selective perception on my site, an unconscious confirmation of stereotypes, or a valid observation I collected and analysed some data, i.e. all comments (about 300k) written to submissions (about 40k) in respective programming language subreddits from 2013-08 to 2014-07 using PRAW and SQLite.

rust-for-node-developers - An introduction to the Rust programming language for Node developers.

  •    Rust

An introduction to the Rust programming language for Node developers. Hi there, I'm a JavaScript developer who wants to learn Rust and as a part of this process I'll write here about my learnings. So what is Rust actually and why should you learn it? Rust is a systems programming language like C or C++, but with influences from functional programming languages and even scripting languages like JavaScript. It feels very modern - which is no surprise, because it is a relatively young language. It went 1.0 in 2015! That doesn't only mean it is fun to write, because it has less clutter to carry around, it is also fun to use, because it has a modern toolchain with a great package manager. Rust's most unique feature is probably the compile-time safety check: it catches errors like segfaults without introducing a garbage collector. Or to phrase it differently: maximum safety with maximum performance.

RustBooks - List of Rust books

  •    

Welcome! This book will teach you about the Rust Programming Language. Rust is a systems programming language focused on three goals: safety, speed, and concurrency. It maintains these goals without having a garbage collector, making it a useful language for a number of use cases other languages aren’t good at: embedding in other languages, programs with specific space and time requirements, and writing low-level code, like device drivers and operating systems. It improves on current languages targeting this space by having a number of compile-time safety checks that produce no runtime overhead, while eliminating all data races. Rust also aims to achieve ‘zero-cost abstractions’ even though some of these abstractions feel like those of a high-level language. Even then, Rust still allows precise control like a low-level language would. This is Rust-101, a small tutorial for the Rust language. It is intended to be an interactive, hands-on course: I believe the only way to really learn a language is to write code in it, so you should be coding during the course. If you have any questions that are not answered here, check out the "Additional Resources" below. In particular, the IRC channel is filled with awesome people willing to help you! I spent lots of time there ;-) I will assume some familiarity with programming, and hence not explain the basic concepts common to most languages. Instead, I will focus on what makes Rust special.

polyglot - Polyglot is a distributed web framework that allows programmers to create web applications in multiple programming languages

  •    Go

Polyglot allows programmers to collaborate and develop a single web app using multiple programming languages, libraries, environments and even different versions of the same language. It means no more programming language wars -- programmers can use the best language for the job and/or their favorite language to write different parts of the same web app.

plzoo - Programming Languages Zoo

  •    OCaml

The Programming Languages Zoo, or PL Zoo for short, is a collection of implementations of miniature programming languages which demonstrates various techniques used in implementation of programming languages. It is a good starting point for those who would like to implement their own programming language, or just learn how it is done. See the PL Zoo website for further information, including installation instructions.


CaffeineScript(BETA) - A beautiful, fun language designed to maximize your JavaScript productivity

  •    Javascript

CaffeineScript is an open-source programming language that compiles to JavaScript. The goal is to minimize total effort, over a product's lifetime, for the entire team. Design thinking is essential for achieving that goal. That means user-experience and graphic design are as important as computer-science and software engineering. A well-designed language makes code more beautiful, programming more fun, and, ultimately, lets us get more done with less effort.

terra - Terra is a low-level system programming language that is embedded in and meta-programmed by the Lua programming language

  •    C++

Terra is a new low-level system programming language that is designed to interoperate seamlessly with the Lua programming language. It is also backwards compatible with (and embeddable in) existing C code. Like C, Terra is a monomorphic, statically-typed, compiled language with manual memory management. But unlike C, it is designed to make interaction with Lua easy. Terra code shares Lua's syntax and control-flow constructs. It is easy to call Lua functions from Terra (or Terra functions from Lua). Furthermore, you can use Lua to meta-program Terra code. The Lua meta-program handles details like conditional compilation, namespaces, and templating in Terra code that are normally special constructs in low-level languages. This coupling additionally enables more powerful features like function specialization, lisp-style macros, and manually controlled JIT compilation. Since Terra's compiler is also available at runtime, it makes it easy for libraries or embedded languages to generate low-level code dynamically.

botframework-sdk - Bot Framework provides the most comprehensive experience for building conversation applications

  •    Roff

The Bot Framework SDK v4, part of the Bot Framework, provides the most comprehensive experience for building conversation applications. With the Bot Framework SDK, developers can easily model and build sophisticated conversation using their favorite programming languages. With the Bot Framework SDK, you can build bots that converse free-form or your bot can also have more guided interactions where it provides the user choices or possible actions. The conversation can use simple text or more complex rich cards that contain text, images, and action buttons. You can add natural language interactions and questions and answers, which let your users interact with your bots in a natural way. The Bot Framework SDK v4 is an open source SDK that enable developers to model and build sophisticated conversation using their favorite programming language.

figaro - Figaro Programming Language and Core Libraries

  •    Scala

Figaro is a probabilistic programming language that supports development of very rich probabilistic models and provides reasoning algorithms that can be applied to models to draw useful conclusions from evidence. Both model representation and reasoning algorithm development can be challenging tasks. Figaro makes it possible to express probabilistic models using the power of programming languages, giving the modeler the expressive tools to create a wide variety of models. Figaro comes with a number of built-in reasoning algorithms that can be applied automatically to new models. In addition, Figaro models are data structures in the Scala programming language, which is interoperable with Java, and can be constructed, manipulated, and used directly within any Scala or Java program.
