DubbelVla is ready for dessert

It feels great. I just "finished" my first Github project: DubbelVla.
It lists identical files in one directory.

I learned a little bit of Python for this one. Although I don't know much Python, those were the things, that made me like this language:

  • Syntax. It just so beautiful. I wish, JavaScript had this great syntax
  • OMG, it's functional. Did not expect that. Something more to dive in.
  • Maps with JSON-like Syntax. Like. +1.

Update on My Learning

Hi there,

I'm going to specify more on the stuff I'm going to learn this year.

So, for the seven programming languages:

It's really tempting to buy just the book "7 Programming Languages in 7 Weeks" and do just that.
That would be sensible in many ways, and perhaps I'll do that.

So: These are the seven languages I'm going to learn this year:

  1. Python
  2. Rust
  3. Go
  4. Ruby
  5. Haskell
  6. Prolog
  7. Scala

Currently, I'm learning Python. DubbelVla will be my the project to be implemented in this newly learned language.

For the other languages, I will decide when I finish DubbelVla. I will think about a new project to learn each language.
I don't know about Swift, about R and other cool stuff, that's on my personal hype list. It would be great and learn all of them but I don't think I have the time.

So, what about the seven frameworks, libraries, whatever?

  1. Ext JS
  2. Spring
  3. Spring MVC
  4. EmberJS
  5. Express 
  6. Ionic
  7. MongoDB
  8. Docker
  9. Node.JS
Yup, now I named them. I can't decide which of them to take. Anyway, I will have at least learned seven of them.
