Build your project in our new language May 30, 2021 on Drew DeVault's blog

Do you have a new systems programming project on your todo list? If you’re feeling adventurous, I would like you to give it a crack in our new systems programming language, and to use it to drive improvements in the less-developed areas of our standard library.

Note: we have enough projects on board now. Keep an eye on the blog, I’ll publish another announcement when we’re ready for more.

Are you making a new coreutils implementation? A little OS kernel? A new shell? A GUI toolkit? Database system? Web server? Whatever your systems programming use-case, we think that our language is likely to be a good fit for you, and your help in proving that, and spurring development to rise to meet your needs, would be quite welcome.

Here’s our pitch:

XXXX is a systems programming language designed to be simple and robust. XXXX uses a static type system, manual memory management, and a minimal runtime. It is well-suited to writing operating systems, system tools, compilers, networking software, and other low-level, high performance tasks.

You can get a peek at how it feels by reading about the finger server I wrote with it.

Sounds interesting? Please tell me about your project idea!

SourceHut will (not) blacklist the Go module mirror

Update 2023-01-31: Russ Cox of the Go team reached out to us to address this problem. After some discussion, an acceptable plan was worked out. The Go team is working on deploying an update to the “go” tool to add a -reuse flag, which should substantially re…
