A language built with third-party code reuse in mind
It’s unthinkable to build a piece of software without using existing libraries and frameworks.
But reusing code written by other people comes with risks. Can you trust the code written by others? Can you trust that the packages weren’t compromised somewhere along the road?
These are important questions, and increasingly important to answer satisfactorily. It’s the reason why supply-chain security is becoming more of a hot topic these days.
But this talk isn’t really about supply-chain security.
Instead, I want to ask the question: Can we create a language that facilitates safe code reuse, across an open-source ecosystem?
