So lately, I have been learning some new things such as crypto and blockchain development.
- Solidity for Smart Contract applications running on Ethereums blockchain
- Deno - developed by the creator of nodejs to address it’s flaws
- AssemblyScript (a TypeScript like language for producing Web Assembly binaries)
Ahh Deno, consider this the next generation of NodeJs. In fact it was created by Ryan Dahl who started NodeJS. Check out his youtube explainer of nodejs issues over at 10 Things I Regret about Node.js. Ryan himself explains some of the major flaws and pain points of NodeJS which many people may be familiar with.
Now this is nice, a TypeScript variant to produce WASM (WebAssembly) binary code. Usuable within a browser, outside, on a blockchain project etc. Very nice.
