    In a social gathering, someone (a music/visual artist) asked me the following:
    When you see a working application, can you tell how the code is written and organized?
    What do you think?

    I'm intrigued by the idea of multiple syntaxes that can map to the same AST, such as used in Forest: https://github.com/forest-lang/forest-compiler#FAQ I'm curious if anyone has seen something like this where the syntax structure remains the same, but keywords are translated to different natural languages. As in Forest, a layer between the code repo and editor would parse the code in its original language and translate the AST into the user's language, and do the reverse on the commit to the repo. One would have to take a bit of care to ensure that there are not namespace collisions between keywords and other names, but otherwise it seems possible to do. I'm also curious if anyone has taught an English programming language to non-English students, and how much the language mismatch was a burden?

    I am quite new to this Slack group, and trying to find out if anyone has a document or overview which lists all the projects here, a brief description and status of the project, the people involved, as that would make it very easy to navigate the group? Or is this something I should create a shared google doc and we can all update it in the group?

    What
    ideal
    tools would you like to have in every project you work on? My list: • Graph db - I’m fed up with Relational dbs and Mongo like key value stores. (OpenCypher as query language would be really nice 😄 ) - offline-first support • Same language both for server and client (like typescript) • Static typing (I’d prefer Dependent Types like Idris, but the ecosystem is just not that mature) • Actor model, visualisation: like XState • Over The Air update support (for mobile apps) • Visual (Snapshot) Testing (like percy.io) • support for Property based testing & random tests

    @Pezo - Zoltan Peto My ideal project tools would be one where I don't know if I have any of those things in the list. My ideal tool would be something that would allow me to watch Netflix at the same time as building a system
