codenerdery, haskell 

Whoops up until 0230 hacking on a toy project.

In happy news, I think I mostly get the State monad now.

@epilanthanomai Yay for Haskell!

@Stronae I don't make a ton of time to study Haskell. Sometimes when I do it's slow and slogging and frustrating. And then sometimes my head explodes and everything is galaxy brain and I wonder why I even bother with literally any other language.

@epilanthanomai Hehehe, yeah. It's my go-to language for problems that are abstract and hard.

@Stronae Python has been that for me for a Very Long Time (actually a go-to for most problems tbh), but once I get to practical levels of Haskell I'm beginning to suspect it'll take that over.

@epilanthanomai @Stronae I like the idea of Haskell but given that most of my coding work is systems-level, I can't ever amass enough time and attention to really learn it. I have a similar problem with Rust. Rust is amazing-looking but I get no time to use it for anything meaningful.

@roadriverrail Yeah, most of my Haskell experience rn is coming from a toy project to overengineer fizzbuzz. The initial learning curve feels like a cliff wall sometimes, but every now and then I get to a resting spot and the view just keeps getting nicer.

@roadriverrail @epilanthanomai Oh, totally understandable.
