    I haven’t shown this before, but I figured that it might be interesting to this group. For 2 years I was the tech lead on a robotics visualization tool called Webviz (I’ve moved to a different team now though). Not really looking for feedback since the intended audience is robotics engineers, and the onboarding experience is.. super rough. 😅 But we can get away with that since it’s incredibly useful; it’s the most used internal tool at our company. Which goes to show how important interactive programming visualizations are — especially in a complex domain like robotics! Anyway, figured some of you might find this interesting. Happy to answer any questions. https://webviz.io/

    Most people here probably use terminals / CLIs quite often and like them for their conceptual simplicity: Send a command -> Receive a response. I'm thinking about improving CLIs while keeping what I like about them. One thing I'd like to improve is interactivity in the output. Different use cases require different levels of detail and currently, there's no way to change the level of detail once the result of a command is printed. For example, a lot of commands include
    --verbose
    options that perform the same action, but print additional output. So what if you could interactively decide what information to show in the output? This would allow more flexible / readable output and wouldn't require re-running commands to get additional information. In the tweet below, I mocked a simple example where a stack trace is hidden by default, but can be shown when needed. What do you think of this small idea?https://twitter.com/FKohlgrueber/status/1293865745420615680

    What is future of hardware and how will it impact the future of code? What are the most promising approaches to breaking free of Von Neumann bottleneck? <- is this still a thing? I have heard Simon Peyton Jones say a couple of times that they tried to create new architectures for functional languages but they failed. Would these architectures succeed today? Are the constraints(business, technical, community) different enough or will be differ enough in 10 years that they could succeed?
