hi Andreas! will you stream your first online earl grey purchase with the Ladybird browser?
How is jakt going on? I saw some recent activity there from your side
nearly 40k subs
Hey friend, your haircut & mustache reminds me of the great Ragnar Lothbrok, hahaha
That's neat. -- Kotlin does something similar for Java automatically, so you can impotr Java code. Q: Are you considering something similar for Jakt with C++?
Hi Andreas, what was the thinking behind changing the function keyword in jakt?
Dang I think I upset the automod enough that it's blocking everything I say now. πŸ˜†

hbk! i must of course ask what you're drinking this morning (or afternoon!) to celebrate :^)
sounds like you're gonna grow horns soon πŸ€”
april fools idea: os hacking but clickbaited, with constant memes and jumpcuts and engagement farming
at least be consistent and do public -> pub, too πŸ™ƒ
when my beard gets super long it looks like I'm wearing a ferret around my neck, not sure how to braid that πŸ˜…
HBDπŸŽ‚πŸ¦¬!! I've been with quite a bit of free time on my hands lately, I really want to contribute to Jakt, it's that everything feels too overwhelming and "big", how can a beginner get their feet wet?
Does self-hosting a language includes machines codes all the way back to the chain of languages its compiled from?. e.g. Assembly>C>C++>jakt. Does it import functionality of garbage collect. from C++?
There are a lot of people that feel very passionately about "composition over inheritance". Have you ever put this to the test in your coding? I really feel unsure about it, maybe its just syntax.
Any Jakt videos coming?
Hello hello, Happy Birthday! Hope you've been doing better with the cold πŸ˜…
penalties for not following through on wen-post? make an example out of andrew...
programming languages are a nice type of project for developing against tests! I'm trying to get my PRs merged before diving into Jakt myself!
How do you manage your life work balance? Do you sometimes feel bad about working too much or too little?
composition over inheritance means violating DRY
One example where I really feel weird about inheritance in Serenity, is Label inheriting from Frame.
take a break, go enjoy some (vegan) hotdogs
Some pizza or candy money into the birthday weekend
I don't think I'm going to commit to no wen posts over a meme like that πŸ™ˆ
this sponsor is in favor of you working at a long term sustainable pace fwiw. don't feel bad for being sick
Happy birthday! Out of curiousity, are more perf videos coming down the pipeline?
Do you program anything outside of Serenity ?
(we still expect high productivity when it's time for the yearly review though!)
I remember you said you were excited about something, but could only disclose what it is sometime around early 2023. Any updates?
Do you expect a drop in donations because of GitHub Sponsors dropping PayPal support?
One concrete problem where I feel neither inheritance/composition helps is GroupBox.I wanted to make it collapsible, but at the same time not push all that complexity on all GroupBoxes.
Happy birthday, how old did you get?
What would you recommend for someone starting to get into SerenityOS, particularly for someone who has never worked on a codebase that is bigger than 1 or 2 files.
birthday? who? Andreas? Have a great day big dude!
It's amazing that folks that are miles ahead of the pack still feel hard on themselves.
i feel like you should see the donations more a rewards what you've already done, rather than for something woul will do. it's not a comission…
Congrats on the LinuxFormat article, how did that come about?
is it fair to say that serenity has transitioned from a wild west of innovation to a big stuffy open source project?
Happy belated bday & TY for bringing us SerenityOS! Your commitment to the project and outlook on programming/life in general has been super inspiring for myself & many others
With the dynamic layout system seemingly working fine, I have wondered if there even is a place for fixed sizes still.
Are vector fonts becoming the default?
HI Andreas, I've been a viewer for a few years now and I love the system you have built!
Happy birthday Andreas!!!
Such peer pressure to Linus. πŸ™ƒ
Love your work
Do you ever feel like not wanting to add features to a certain part of the system, because you'd rather redesign it from the ground up?
What programming channels / influencers do you enjoy??
Happy cake! When are you publishing your auto biography or at least β€œJakt for dummies”?
it's kind of surprising how much more "modern" a nice vector font makes the system seem, well in my opinion at least
This is a very cool and inspiring project - I was wondering how close it is to being able to run on bare metal? Is it a case of just writing drivers for the hardware you want to run on?
little weird question: Is your name usual in Sweden? I expect something like Klingson or some special characters over some letters etc. πŸ˜€
WHF! Just missed Today's stream but happy to have caught the tail. Love the Serenity wallpaper! πŸ™Œ
@Andreas Kling There basically already is a way to get the buttons resizing with the font, by implementing calculated_{min/preferred}_size() but it does come with weird resulting layouts sometimes.
If you all don't call yourself the Kling Klang then I'm a little disappointed
Do you have a suggestion of any other IDE other than clion for serenity development?
