    to research programming languages and tools

    This series is democratizing access to tools one-step removed

    I’m sorry but right now this is a list of stuff curated by one? person who thinks they might be doing things better than others. But this is phrased in such a vague way that I don’t even know where to start.

    Maybe just rephrasing it to be sound less canonical might help, but right now my only question is: where are the roughly 200 tools and languages I’ve already used in the past?

      I agree that is one weird sentence, but I’m confused by your criticisms. This is a catalog of reviews for programming environments the author has deemed interesting / representative for their category. The name is a riff on The Whole Earth Catalog, a magazine/catalog that included reviews of things, and which, at least for a certain group of people, was seminal.

        Maybe it’s my perception of the word “catalog”. It says “expansive” or “big”, maybe even “close to complete”. My bad probably, but YMMV.

      This is really great, thanks!

        I love the effort going into analysing these things. The videos showing how they work and the examples are great at pitching each of these tools. Good work
