Also: If you're going to do research on functional programming or especially Haskell, you're not going to get around Simon Peyton Jones. Literally one third of my citations are from him.
Now as a companion to my thesis I have to do a presentation on it. My supervisor has recommended me a video on how to give a good science talk. Guess whom it's from.
Content warning abbreviations can be a bit confusing, so here are the most common ones:
ph = physical health
mh = mental health
pol. = politics
adj. = adjacent
+ = positively framed
~ = neutrally/uncertaintly framed
- = negatively framed
begpost = crowdfunding request
= Boosts are okay/appreciated
= Twitter, also known as "Birdsite"
If anyone can think of anything else, we'll happily boost it. But most others tend to be self-explanatory.
Preliminary result of my benchmarking: The optimisation strategy I spend the last two month on developing, that required disabling a different optimisation, causes negligible improvements and makes things worse by a factor of 10.000 if you use lists somewhere in your program.
My thesis is going fine 🙂
I've been on masto quite a while now, so I think an #introduction is overdue.
Moin. I am a (soon to be finished) computer science student in Germany. My interests are #FOSS #functionalProgramming and #gamedev. I focus on 2D puzzlers but am open for more. I am also interested in human languages. Especially conlangs like #TokiPona. If able, I go climbing fairly regularly.
Sadly I am not very good at expressing myself so if I say something controversial, take it with a grain of salt.
"enthusiasts who celebrate characters"
I mean technically not wrong but certified oof.
Good job from the #furries though
