TWiR quote of the week

Heard recently creative coding experience which rust gives. What about unconscious coding experience - do whatever you can to make your code compile as late as you can, then go sleep and find your code correct and working in the morning

Woah, I know people say the Rust compiler is slow but I never had a Rust program that took all night to compile :slight_smile:

Actually the point is it finally compiles, you got there but don't get why as it's too late, but in the morning you find it is all correct :slight_smile:

...with the proviso that the first quote should be extended to make it clear that the second one is a tongue-in-cheek intentional misinterpretation of something that's originally talking about coding while not in full command of your faculties.
