Soooooooo… I’ve been pretty busy, which is why I haven’t been posting that often. However, now that things are moving again, I wanted to write about something that I think developers would find useful.
As I mentioned in my last post, languages like Rust and Swift are designed to move beyond C++, introducing some syntatic sugar and other goodies to lure you away from what has become a very old language. Even though you can probably create anything in C++, it also allows you to get in your own way very easily.
Syntatic sugar tends to help ease new programmers into a particular language, as well as learn other programming paradigms. If you look at Swift and Rust, however, you’ll notice that they’re kind of similar.
