'Users hate change'

This week NN Group released a video by Jakob Nielsen in which he attempts to help designers deal with the problem of customers being resistant to their new site/product redesign. The argument goes thusly:

  1. Humans naturally resist change
  2. Your change is for the better
  3. Customers should just get used to it and stop complaining

There's slightly more to it than that, he caveats his argument with requiring you to have of course followed their best practices on product design, and allows for a period of customers being able to elect to continue to use the old site, although he says this is obviously only a temporary solution as you don't want to support both.

What is the appeal of dynamically-typed languages?

Kris Nuttycombe asks:

I genuinely wish I understood the appeal of unityped languages better. Can someone who really knows both well-typed and unityped explain?

I think the terms well-typed and unityped are a bit of question-begging here (you might as well say good-typed versus bad-typed), so instead I will say statically-typed and dynamically-typed.

I'm going to approach this article using Scala to stand-in for static typing and Python for dynamic typing. I feel like I am credibly proficient both languages: I don't currently write a lot of Python, but I still have affection for the language, and have probably written hundreds of thousands of lines of Python code over the years.

io.js - what you need to know

io-logo-substack

  • io is a fork of node v0.12 (the next stable version of node.js, currently unreleased)
  • io.js will be totally compatible with node.js
  • the people who created io.js are node core contributors who have different ideas on how to run the project
  • it is not a zero-sum game. many core contributors will help maintain both node.js and io.js

Rust developer tools - status and strategy

Availability and quality of developer tools are an important factor in the success of a programming language. C/C++ has remained dominant in the systems space in part because of the huge number of tools tailored to these lanaguages. Succesful modern languages have had excellent tool support (Java in particular, Scala, Javascript, etc.). Finally, LLVM has been successful in part because it is much easier to extend than GCC. So far, Rust has done pretty well with developer tools, we have a compiler which produces good quality code in reasonable time, good support for debug symbols which lets us leverage C++/lanaguge agnostic tools such as debuggers, profilers, etc., there are also syntax highlighting, cross-reference, code completion, and documentation tools.

In this document I want to layout what Rust tools exist and where to find them, highlight opportunities for tool developement in the short and long term, and start a discussion about where to focus our time an
