A new programming language has been developed by the folks up in Redmond and not by anyone working in the new Amazon offices. This new programing languages is rumored to be easier to read and less prone to errors. Microsoft believes it could be good for people learning and for large complex projects.
With any new language by a large tech company some excitement is always expected. In this case there have been dozens of developers flocking to use this new language in their projects. Mostly all of these uses are currently experimental, but still over a dozen users of new technology is one small feat.
