Hello, World

I’ve been blogging on Medium for the better part of the last 4 years. But given the hype around Substack, thought it wouldn’t hurt to write more on this medium (apologies for the pun).

Especially, one of the topics I wish to cover in more depth in 2021 is concurrency on modern multiprocessor machines. This is a topic which I feel isn’t particularly well-understood or well-explained, and it’s been a long term goal of mine to demystify some of these concepts and APIs, drawing from my own experience having worked in a number of different programming languages and ecosystems. I’m also excited to explore concepts from languages and ecosystems I don’t have much experience in, notably Erlang, Pony and Rust.

It’d be interesting to see how this format works out, as compared to writing on Medium, which has something of a “network effect” phenomenon, given recommendations and more. I might even cross-post to Medium, just to see how the two platforms compare.

That’s all for now. Happy 2021.
