Ask HN: What “old” programming languages will you still be using in 2017? | Hacker News

Tue, 01/03/2017 - 19:40
Many folks have said it here but I'll say it again: Common Lisp. I have been using it professionally for 5+ years as a full-time employee at various companies. Some big-name ones, some smaller start-up ones. The mean Lisp team size has been around 4, but I did work on a project of 15 Lisp programmers. None of these projects were legacy code. Some were in places you wouldn't expect (embedded, multi-processor systems on custom-designed boards, for example). In every single case, we had no additional trouble hiring a Lisp or Lisp-capable programmer as compared to hiring for any other language, including Python. (In fact, Python was more difficult to hire for because the market is saturated with beginners who claim expertise.) Lisp is one of those languages where the ratio of long-term benefits and productivity vs. good initial impressions is at a record high. It doesn't look like C or Python or JS, with all the parentheses, so people brush it off. Lisp isn't the pinnacle of every great idea to come about in computer science and software engineering, but it is one of the most robust, macroscopically well designed, and most productive languages for translating arbitrary abstract ideas into maintainable, production code. Even if it doesn't look initially very pretty in the eyes of a career Python programmer. reply

NEW YORK, NY -- There was no beating around the bush in the Devils locker room.

The Predators outmatched them from start to finish, handing the team their seventh straight loss by a 5-1 final Tuesday night.

"It sucks. It's a tough one to swallow," forward Kyle Palmieri said. "Had a day off yesterday, and we didn't show up to play today. There's not much else to say about it."

Dart 1.21 released, with generic gethod syntax : programming

[–]davidk01 1 point 2 hours ago They fall in a similar design region for programming languages. Both offer optional typing but they're pretty distinct in my mind. I reach for Dart when I want small, self-contained, server-side code. Dart snapshotting comes pretty close to deploying single binaries. I reach for TypeScript when I want to write good client-side code because there are a lot .d.ts files for all the major client-side libraries and Visual Studio Code provides a pretty nice experience when it comes to editing TypeScript.
