Obversvations

  • Java is still language to go for Android develope.
  • OneDev might be a good choice for everyone who is interested in a self-hosted Git server solution. In addition, you will get Kanban board and CI/CD support. Looks pretty interesting for personal projects if you can’t/don’t want to use services like Github or Gitlab.
  • I’m not a Haskell developer and don’t have any experience using the Haskell programming language, but I think Haskell developers might find the HVM project pretty interesting.
  • If you are terminal fan go and check Zellij project (was initially called “Mosaic”).
  • Tauri project looks like a bridge connecting web and desktop which is already popular across developers and continues growing.
