    Anybody know the date of this blog/interview, is this recent?

    1. 2

      I did the interview with Michael a little over a month ago, so fairly recent.

      Shameless plug - I interviewed Andreas, the creator of Nim, about his philosophy and design choices here: https://sourcesort.com/interview/andreas-rumpf-on-creating-and-growing-nim

      Might be an interesting read for people who are thinking about using Nim and wondering how it compares to the C family, Python, Go, etc.

        I love his final words:

        creativity is often the result of constraints.

        Nice small interview by the way :)

          Very interesting read. Definitely makes me more interested in trying out Nim. He said he works full-time and has two other programmers working on it too. Where does the money come from for this?

            One year ago Nim partnered with Status, see the article about this partnership.

            Nim’s long development process and growing community also mean that Nim is mature

            A-ha-heh… um… When I looked, the package/library ecosystem doesn’t hold a candle to, say, RubyGems or npm. (Not hating on Nim, just saying.)

              Maybe mature doesn’t mean that there is a package for everything, but rather the packages are not buggy.
