Was it Alexander Pope who said, “Hope springs eternal in the human breast”? Pope was a poet, not a hacker, but I believe he would understand the anticipation involved in discovering a new programming language. He would know that software developers are forever hopeful that this language, with its unique conflation of Unicode characters, will finally solve all of our problems, making coding easy with just a few clicks.
Pope surely would understand the desire for a new syntax so intuitive that we need only imagine an answer, and see it rendered into logical rules that are marvelous, elaborate, and above all correct. He would appreciate the yearning in our fingers to spin new code that looks as effortless and elegant as a triple axel, an inward three-and-a-half in the pike position, or a giant slalom run in the Olympics.
