Read this book to add seven particularly interesting languages to your repertoire.

Seven More Languages in Seven Weeks is a well-paced introduction to a set of fascinating languages that will be new to many. This one goes at just the right tempo and provides enough detail to be useful—but not so much as to douse natural curiosity. Definitely a book I would recommend to others wanting to expand their programming horizons.

Seven More Languages in Seven Weeks not only introduces us to a wide spectrum of languages, but also challenges us on how we think about language use and design.

Software development is a demanding career and learning new languages will always be essential. That is why the Seven in Seven series is one of the most invaluable reads for any serious programmer. Ebooks are You just can't give them to other people or sell them. Ebook delivery options. Learn from the award-winning programming series that inspired the Elixir language.

Hear how other programmers across broadly different communities solve problems important enough to compel language development.

Expand your perspective, and learn to solve multicore and distribution problems. Write a fully functional game in Elm, without a single callback, that compiles to JavaScript so you can deploy it in any browser. Write a logic program in Clojure using a programming model, MiniKanren, that is as powerful as Prolog but much better at interacting with the outside world.

Build a distributed program in Elixir with Lisp-style macros, rich Ruby-like syntax, and the richness of the Erlang virtual machine. Build your own object layer in Lua, a statistical program in Julia, a proof in code with Idris, and a quiz game in Factor.

With each passing day, it is becoming more likely that new programmers will use functional programming, an entirely new programming paradigm.

Each of the new languages has something unique to teach the next generation of programmers. Programmers who want to improve themselves are learning functional programming in increasing numbers.

Factor is a great language for learning about the composition of functions. The concatenative language forces new users to think through how functions will work together. If you want to learn JavaScript, learn how prototypes work first in a simpler language. New JavaScript programmers are often better off learning a language like Lua first, which has the same overall model but fewer distracting concepts than JavaScript.

Reactive programming is a new style of user interface development that helps build highly interactive and reliable applications. The Elm programming language is a language with reactive concepts baked in, from the inside out, and it compiles to JavaScript.

Languages have different strengths and claiming that a language is better than other languages without reference to a specific use case only invites an unproductive and vitriolic debate. But there is one language that seems to inspire a peculiar universal reverence: Lisp. Keyboard crusaders that would otherwise pounce on anyone daring to suggest that some language is better than any other will concede that Lisp is on another level.

Lisp transcends the utilitarian criteria used to judge other languages, because the median programmer has never used Lisp to build anything practical and probably never will, yet the reverence for Lisp runs so deep that Lisp is often ascribed mystical properties.

And when I ponder snowflakes, never finding two the same, I know God likes a language with its own four-letter name. Lisp was concocted in the ivory tower as a tool for artificial intelligence research, so it was always going to be unfamiliar and maybe even a bit mysterious to the programming laity. They do this even though Lisp is now the second-oldest programming language in widespread use, younger only than Fortran, and even then by just one year.

But how would you even do that? How does a programming language come to be known as a font of hidden knowledge? How did Lisp get to be this way? The cover of Byte Magazine, August, The Summer Research Project was in effect an ongoing, multi-week academic conference, the very first in the field of artificial intelligence.

Languages That Are Shaping the Future

Newell and Simon had been trying to build a system capable of generating proofs in propositional calculus. Programs in IPL would basically leverage a series of assembly-language macros to manipulate and evaluate expressions within one or more of these lists. McCarthy thought that having algebraic expressions in a language, Fortran-style, would be useful.

Of course, Lisp today does not resemble Fortran.

His ideas began to change in , when he started writing routines for a chess-playing program in Fortran. The prolonged exposure to Fortran convinced McCarthy that there were several infelicities in its design, chief among them the awkward IF statement. None of these things could be expressed in Fortran, so, in the fall of , McCarthy set some students to work implementing Lisp. As McCarthy and his students translated his ideas into running code, they made changes that further simplified the language.

Though M-expressions could be translated to S-expressions—the basic lists enclosed by parentheses that Lisp is known for— S-expressions were really a low-level representation meant for the machine. McCarthy and his students also made a few other simplifications, including a switch to prefix notation and a memory model change that meant the language only had one real type.

McCarthy explained Lisp to his readers by building it up out of only a very small collection of rules.Packages: Kpax3. Cyrus Maher and Ryan D. But that may have happened after Paul Graham, Y-Combinator co-founder and Hacker News creator, published a series of influential essays pushing Lisp as the best language for startups.
