Sessions on new programming languages

Over the past couple of days I attended several OSCON sessions on new (to me) programming languages:

  • CoffeeScript is a scripting language that compiles into JavaScript.  It looks very clean and uses whitespace/indentation just like Python does, which is great.
  • Erlang was not completely new to me, but I had not understood the overall architecture of the Erlang environment and its similarities to an operating systen.
  • Clojure, a Lisp dialect, seems the least practical for day-to-day use, but is also the most different and interesting to me.
