Notes after listening to ATP 364

07.02.2020 13:44

I don’t listen to any tech podcasts anymore, because they bore me to death. The closest is probably Go time, a podcast about the Go Programming Language. But @eli talked about how dumb the hosts were being so I decided to listen and post my reactions to it.

  • Oh my fucking god. So much talk about all kinds of bullshit…
  • SwiftUI
  • Who the fuck writes a view that is hundred or hundreds of lines.
    • Clean code and Single Responsibility FTW
  • Weird stuff is hard with declarative models because declarative programming tries to force you to not doing weird stuff, and weird stuff is almost always a bad idea.
  • Declarative programming is hard, but not impossible.
  • There is plenty of good examples of good patterns to follow if you look at for example react.
  • Even though three gumpy old rich white men don’t think so, there are clean ways to use it
  • I think John is the only one who gets it
  • Marco struggles with anything new, as always. He is like a cobol programmer
  • Homebrew
  • Marco is all wrong.
  • Homebrew works well most of the time, and things rarely break as long as you keep things up to date. It might be broken for a few days here and there. But I almost never experience it, and I upgrade my system multiple times a week.
  • John builds from source, and that is the most John thing ever. HA
