DOP 266: The Evolution of Data Structure Languages

Posted on Wednesday, Jun 5, 2024

Show Notes

#266: The tech industry has witnessed an explosion of new configuration languages that are reshaping the way we manage data structures and generate configuration files. From traditional formats like JSON and YAML to newer languages like Pkl, CUE, and KCL, the landscape of configuration languages is constantly evolving to meet the demands of modern software development.

In this episode, Darin and Viktor talk about where these languages fit in to our projects and how they can help make our lives easier if we are willing to put in the work.
