JetBrain's Fleet editor supports Java, Kotlin, Python, Go, Javascript, Typescript, Rust, and Json languages. Jetbrains has added two modes to its editor: Editor-light, Editor-smart and Editor-Smart.

AWS Redshift Serverless

Amazon Redshift Serverless is a new capability that makes it super easy to run analytics in the cloud with high performance at any scale. There is no need to set up and manage clusters, and you pay for the duration in seconds when your data warehouse is in use, for example, while you are querying or loading data. With the new serverless option, you can continue to query data in other AWS data stores, such as Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) data lakes and Amazon Aurora and Amazon Relational Database Service.

Docker doesn't have any guarantees that creating images is reproducible -- If you run docker build twice with the same Dockerfile you might get 2 images that behave in different ways. Nix takes a first-priniciples approach to reproducible builds and package management.

Despite moving somewhat toward JavaScript technologies over the past several years, WordPress is still reliant on PHP.
