I’m still learning but spread the word – great summary:
The World Wide Haxe Conference 2015 (WWX2015) is already over but had and huge impact on my understanding of the whole Haxe community. It was great to meet the people behind online avatars, talk to some of the super nerds and happily acknowledge that all of them are kind, helpful and good looking. 😉

This is why Haxe is great: A success story for Haxe
Haxe macros are said by many to be “black magic”, and in some ways they are—macros in Haxe are actual Haxe code (rather than macros in C/C++ for example, which are just fancy pre-processor directives). Macros are undoubtedly the most advanced feature of Haxe and probably the hardest to grasp, however I think a major reason for that is a lack of really solid documentation on the subject. To me, the Haxe docs regarding macros are somewhat obfuscated and leave something to be desired, and unfortunately there’s not a lot of other resources online. This is what led me to embark on my own journey of learning Haxe macros, and hopefully starting to shed a little more light on their mystery.
