New Promising Programming Language: V

Found out that there's a new programming language called V. At glance it's like combination of Go and Rust. Seems really promising, has really fast compilation speed.

  • No global state
  • No null
  • No undefined values
  • Option types
  • Generics
  • Immutability by default
  • Partially pure functions
  • Hot Code Reload
  • REPL
  • C/C++ converter
  • Native cross platform UI library
  • Run Everywhere
But no compiler yet (but there's already software built with it), wait until May 2019. I hope it hype :3

CockroachDB 2.1.3 Benchmark

Redoing the old benchmark on my office's Mac, I have installed cockroachdb on Mac using
brew install cockroach

Start the server
cockroach start --insecure --listen-addr=localhost  

Create the database
cockroach sql --insecureCREATE DATABASE test3;GRANT ALL ON DATABASE test3 TO test3; 

And do the benchmark:

alias time='/usr/local/bin/gtime -f "\nCPU: %Us\tReal: %es\tRAM: %MKB"'

time go run cockroach.go lib.go

INSERT: 1.653080201s (0.17 ms/op)
UPDATE: 1.947936008s (0.19 ms/op)

SELECT: 1m44.425784366s (1.60 ms/op: 65096)

CPU: 43.20s Real: 108.71s RAM: 89072KB

The benchmark performed on i7-4770HQ, 16GB RAM, SSD harddisk, with OSX Mojave 10.14.2 under Go 1.11. Conclusion: the result is really impressive :3 Great job CockroachDB Team.
