Hello World 137 words published on February 05, 2018.

All things start with a “Hello World”.

To a programmer this means specifically:

fn main() {
  println!("Hello World");

But in general it should represent the minimal effort to show the workings of a system’s dependencies. For example, let’s say you are tasked with playing music for a crowd. Before you get to actually playing the music you must perform a “Hello World”, or in terms musicians might be familiar, a sound check. The sound check does nothing to prevent you from hitting the wrong note, but simply ensures that when you do, everyone will hear it.

This post is my “Hello World” for all the future rambling I may do. If you are reading this now, then my system’s dependencies are working.
