Wheeler will make you think.
Most language have abstractions: lists, objects, bytes, etc.. In Wheeler the abstraction is state. Some languages avoid state like the plague. Wheeler runs toward state like it has the cure.
Wheeler distills the most essential elements of programming into a few basic principles, and then through those principles it reinvents programming, for better or worse. Wheeler has very little syntax and completely dynamic semantics. It is horribly wasteful of computer resources and yet can solve some problems more elegantly than traditional programming languages.
Wheeler will challenge your ideas about types, program flow, and how a programming language should work.
