re: What are your favorite programming language syntax features? VIEW POST


Of those, async/await is certainly my favourite. It makes asynchronous programming so wonderfully obvious. I'm not too big a fan of decorators, because they hide underlying logic, making code less readable, if you're not handling them with care.

Even though it's not yet a native language feature in JavaScript or TypeScript, Observables (reactive programming style) are on their way to become one. Until then, we're fine with rxjs.

I also like the unique concept of borrowing in Rust and I like its traits, which allow for a lot of flexibility in the type system.


I was thinking of adding traits here but I have not used it extensively while I was doing PHP. The same is true with it though I believe that it should be handled with care.

I'll definitely checkout Rust.
