New programming languages are born all the time. Some languages are
created to tackle new problems. Some languages are evidence proofs
towards a better way of programming. Some are created just for fun, or
to scratch an itch. The Emerging Languages Camp is a gathering of the
creators of recent programming languages, their peers and colleagues,
and interested programmers, technologists, and journalists.
Emerging Languages Camp brings together some forty language creators
and implementors together to meet and discuss their projects. They’ll
discuss the differences and commonalities of their work, the problems
they’re trying to solve, and help shape the future of programming.
