Microsoft Unveils New (and Simpler) Open Source Programming Language
Microsoft Research has introduced a new open source programming language called Bosque that aspires to be simple and easy to understand by embracing algebraic operations and shunning techniques that create complexity.
Marron believes we can do better by getting rid of sources of complexity like loops, mutable state, and reference equality.
This model builds on the successes of structured programming and abstract data types by simplifying existing programming models into a regularized form that eliminates major sources of errors, simplifies code understanding and modification, and converts many automated reasoning tasks over code into trivial propositions,” Marron explains in his technical paper.
What’s Bosque look like? Here’s an example that’s the equivalent of an imperative
