Why are scripting languages (e.g. Perl, Python, Ruby) not suitable as shell languages? - Stack Overflow
Shell programming is basically dataflow programming. Nobody realizes that, not even the people who write shells, but it turns out that shells are quite good at that, and general-purpose languages not so much. In the general-purpose programming world, dataflow seems to be mostly viewed as a concurrency model, not so much as a programming paradigm.

Update on await syntax
In my previous post I said that the lang team would be making our final decision about the syntax of the await operator in the May 23 meeting. That was last Thursday, and we did reach a decision. In brief, we decided to go forward with the preliminary proposal I outlined earlier: a postfix dot syntax, future.await. For more background, in addition the previous post on my blog, you can read this write up about some of the trade offs from April.

Uma parte do meu IRS vai financiar o sistema de ensino que me serviu de forma decisiva para ter uma vida melhor. Não me parece mau negócio. E tem um efeito que me parece importante: responsabiliza-me por dar aos outros o que outros me deram a mim: a possibilidade de, por via da qualificação, ter uma vida melhor.
