So I begin another side project. I want to create a C-like language that compiles to a "portable shell script syntax".

The idea is to write something like this.

if @str.equal(somedata, "stuff") {
  grep("mystring", "/tmp/myfile")
  npm("init") . force . quiet

Then transform that into a shell script.

if [ "$somedata" = "stuff" ]
  grep "mystring" "/tmp/myfile"
  echo "what?"
  npm "init" -y > /dev/null 2>&1

Still trying to figure out the grammar. The good news is that discovered this thing that takes care of the AST stuff and let's me try out different things quickly.

Anyway, that should keep me busy for a while.

I always wanted to ask this question. Is it worth it to do 100 Days of Code? I feel like I would forget to post about it daily and would have to restart. Any thoughts on this?

BTW: I have looked into it and it seems like a lot at times.

How and why might a newbie want to get into devops?

I might have gotten into devops/SRE because system programming excited me equally as application development initially.
