is probably a decent language, but the build configuration around gradle tooling is horrendous and extremely painful. I have spent hours just trying to get a simple gradle build going. Problems like `Could not determine Java version using executable /usr/lib/jvm/java-10-openjdk/bin/java` shouldn't be a thing in 2018, really you can't tell the version from the correct executable? Everybody should learn from tools like Bundler and 's for how build tooling should be done

Hi there! I am a free software developer. I enjoy working on useful software, as well as advocating for software freedom and the use of open standards, promoting data ownership, decentralization and privacy. If this is important to you, I may be worth following. If you like Go, Rust, or Swift, it may be worth following me as well. Besides computing, I enjoy metal, a good read and occasionally some gaming, (not much time for that these days).
