100 Languages Speedrun

Luna has landed! by hehaden from flickr (CC-NC)

I didn't take a long break after finishing the 100-episode daily Electron Adventures series. I already started another one - 100-episode daily "100 Languages Speedrun" series, where I'm trying out a new programming language every day.

It's been going for about a week now, and it's available:

I already explained the goals of the series in the first episode, so I'll just repost it below. Enjoy the series!

Time to start a 100 programming languages speedrun. Every day or so, I'll be posting about a different programming language. Not just doing 100 fizzbuzzes, but trying out something that's interesting about each language.

But that's not all, some of the programming languages I will create for purpose of this series. So if you follow along, you'll see not just a lot of different programming languages, but you might also learn a thing or two about how to create your own.

I won't be shy about my opinions, and I might be even exaggerating a bit. Feel free to share your thoughts in the comments.

Episodes will all be independent. Target audience is people who know programming, but don't know a 100 difference languages, so I'll often use some less idiomatic ways of doing things if I think it's clearer for such reader, or if it lets me showcase specific language feature better. For languages where it's not enforced, I'll mostly stick to best-practice cross-language code formatting (2 spaces indentation, double quoted strings, no semicolons etc.), even if that language generally uses something else.

Dear Taw
Your speed run reminds me of this similar one i saw at this blog. Speed was measured by this developer. And did you see the results for assembly?
