      Dismissive comments like this are not constructive and do not belong in any environment that encourages the evolution of opinion. If you have a strong opinion about something (e.g. code-generation) then back up that opinion with a strong argument.

              Just found this, appears to be a primer on Michelson, but I haven’t looked too closely. https://www.michelson-lang.com/

              Enterprise integration, actually. Working on a paper, but don’t hold your breath.
