TWiR quote of the week

<Quxxy2> But in general, invisible dependencies make your code more brittle and harder to understand
<Quxxy2> It's like the One Ring: being invisible is handy, but being exposed to ring wraiths is *kinda* a bad trade-off

On #rust, talking about global variables.


The name of the thread isn’t accurate, but the name of the type is still (), for the same reason that (1u32, 1u32) is of type (u32, u32). So the quote is still accurate.


Good point. The answer is correct, the question’s just a bit outdated.

My plan is to hopefully have a working “hello triangle” less than a week after the release of Vulkan 1.0.

Now we just need Go to start versioning its compiled objects, and then it could be better than Carg…OH WAIT NOPE y’all already did that too

Everyone can teach us something.

Sometimes what they teach us is what not to do by example.

Some provide actual innovations even while shooting themselves in the foot, after all; a unique foot shooting is still unique.

Some projects provide the same!

I think for 90% of the code in the world a language like Haskell is fast enough. For the next 9% Rust with all safety on is fast enough. The next .9% percent can probably be fine with unsafe Rust / plain C. And then there’s a few things you basically want to write in optimized C + asm/intrinsics.

Rust: When you want to feel like an idiot because even a mere compiler is smarter than you.

By Manishearth on /r/rust


at some point everyone learning Rust will bash their head against the borrow checker and ask the Rust gods why their finely handcrafted lifetime annotations fail to pass its muster.

Rust is so great, that I have come forth as a truly better idiot to field test rust and have failed to muck it up too bad.


the benchmarks game is a pretty solid study on the boredom of
performance-oriented software engineers grouped by programming language.

I’d like to apologize for any distress or hurt feelings this statement may have caused. I made it before having my first coffee this morning.


Rust is not what makes these projects awesome. These projects are what make Rust awesome.

Do you need a ()?

I pronounce unit as “hug”

@Manishearth, better halting the cursing problem than cursing the halting problem :smile:
