Pinned toot

Hi, fediverse!

I'm currently studying . My interests include , especially , and . I also work with .

Outside of academics, I do a lot of sports. Mainly , , and .

In my off-time, I sometimes watch and read .

Looks like I just had to click a thing to do the first one. Nice! :blobhappy:

Also, I'm still trying to find something nice to formalize and I only have time to decide until tomorrow. So if you have a nice suggestion, if it involves some sort of type theory, I'd be all ears!

I'm finally gonna do all of the uncomfortable organizational stuff that I've been postponing for a while now.

@abs Here's what I alluded to earlier about record projections (which makes the first naive attempt in your post typecheck)

Metamorphosis by Kafka is about what happens to you and your family when you become a gamer

The post is finished (I even discovered a nicer solution while writing it!), now I just have to figure out what I want to call my blog. :think_bread:

I think I've figured out the tech that goes into a blog but I still haven't figured out what to write about. I was thinking about writing up this dependent matching stuff I had to figure out a few days ago but I'm not really sure if that's something anybody would want to read. :think_bread: seems to be broken right now, so I'll be hanging out over here until @satanya comes back to fix it.

If you haven't noticed it yet, I have been posting pretty much exclusively over at @abs for a while now. I'm gonna move over there fully now, so please follow me there if you want to keep up with my stuff.


#reintroductions coz why not:
hi i'm into #programming , trying to learn (more of) #idris rn, I used to do a lot of #blender #3d stuff, some 2d art but nothing worth uploading, i watch a bunch of #animation (when i can) aaand sometimes i run.
also interested in #teaching and how it relates to the #hacking mindset.
oh and i like #plan9 (the operating system) and learning about weird systems and languages and stuff

He also seems to ignore dependent types in many of his later points of what types can't express, but I guess he just doesn't know about them? He doesn't seem too well versed in PLT.

I watched Maybe Not* this morning and I'm not sure what to make of it.

Some of the points (union types vs sum types) were really good, but a lot of stuff was at least badly put as well.

As I see it, he rags in type systems for a while and then contrasts that with contracts (without calling them that) and just conveniently ignores that the guarantees between them are wildly different. That seems somewhat underhanded tbh.

I really didn't do much today. In the end, I just banged my head on a bunch of proofs and automated a few annoying bits. Tomorrow I will work on making my logic actually sound (whoops! :blobderpy:) and then move onto something else.

I'm very frustrated with how much of a pain equivalences are in Coq. You can pretty much forget about concise proofs if those are involved.

Ah! Adjoint functors are like burritos, except your friend also has a burrito, and theirs doesn't have any hot sauce but yours doesn't have any beans
