The IO Programming Language


One of my students, Duane Johnson, asked me this morning if I'd heard of the IO programming language. I hadn't. Looking around, it looks like a fun little language.

IO is a "pure" object oriented programming language with a simple syntax. IO is a prototype-based OO language. Consequently, Javascript programmers will find the sample code pretty easy to follow. IO's reflective capabilities are very impressive.

IO isn't, as far as I can tell, ready for your next programming project--yet. It's still experimental. Still, it's good to see new languages spring up. There are good ideas to be had and the best way to propagate them is by making them work.
