— You then run that code


Hz pushes the code to a higher abstraction level at which it can be interrupted or preempted, that is all

— So you tell me, after you google "use cases for interrupts", what the re-usability is

— The problem is people who write JS are not familiar with the use cases

— For me it's easy to understand

— Because i did threading a lot in the past

— But for web devs maybe difficult

— That's why we are doing evangelization

— It's hard to convince someone hz is useful determin1st you are helping me actually, because I need to talk to more people who have never heard of such use cases

— I have to teach someone what some computer science concepts are before I can describe hz, because I don't know how to describe it as a product, only as a system

— The concerns of an average front-end JS dev or even back-end are very high level and abstract, so they only know of the event loop and how to architecture programs to run within it, and my #1 struggle has been trying to figure out how to say "but this is different from that"

— I didnt even know beyond that, until I looked at Java, Crystal, Golang, Erlang, etc... and saw how differently their programs were architected, and the problems they faces VS the lack of the same problems JS faced
