Programming Language Design

I believe that programming languages could be much better than what we currently work with. There are many reasons for this at the YourLanguageSucks project for instance, and I have described another reason here.

IMHO, the following alternative languages are well worth taking a look at:

  • Scala
  • Lisp
  • Prolog
  • Pascal, Delphi
  • Smalltalk
  • Seed7
  • Self
  • Python (people told me)
