I mostly do so in Common Lisp, which gives me the performance of C with the productivity of Python, and the ability to extend the language with macros. But, having used it for nearly 20 years exclusively, I have recently started looking for other languages, primarily to learn all the different ideas there are out there.
Nothing complete enough, or interesting enough worth publishing yet :)
I'm a researcher mostly, so just like to implement cool graphics techniques in academic papers :)
Haven't made much of anything I would call an application, but I would like to one day.

<riza> I can't imagine being productive in a Lisp... I always have to sit and stare at the screen for 3 hours before typing a line. But it's a neat language, and I imagine if I spent the time on it maybe that 3 hours would shrink a bit...
That looked interesting, but will take some time to iron out for sure. I really like how Crystal is managed and coming together.
If I'm being honest, I'll share the major reason besides the toxic community that I left Nim, and I'm not seeing it here.
The project seemed like an experimental sandbox of the lead developer, pushing out new features that didn't need to exist, and before testing them, making the compiler very complex and fragile. There's like 7 garbage collector choices, and a bunch of other features that makes it feel more like C++ than a well thought out language.
