Boo

No, I'm not talking about the little girl from Monsters, Inc. I'm talking about Rodrigo Barreto de Oliveira's work on a new language called Boo, defined as a "wrist friendly language" on its manifesto. Boo borrows some ideas from other languages (e.g., "duck typing" is nothing more than the old "late binding"), but introduces several new concepts (at least, new to me):

There are some things, I don't like, though:


But the coolest things about this language are:

  1. It's .NET friendly, so you can start using it now where it makes sense to produce some C#-callable libraries

  2. Hey, it's from a Brazilian buddy! It's always nice to see some yellow & green language design!
