A month or so ago, @__biancat (whose username I can’t help but read as “Bian-cat” even though it’s probably “Bianca T.”) suggested I write up some ideas for getting into compilers and programming languages.
It turns out I’m happy to expound on this, and it doesn’t need a formal CS education either.1 Unfortunately, pretty much all of them require some amount of free time. I’ll come back to that at the end of the post.
