Home / Asking the right question about language design

Paul Graham is an unusual keynote speaker for a Python conference. What I like is that he asks the question about a language design that I’ve never seen being asked by others: how should a language for the next 100 years look like. There’s a lot of different languages and even those most popular either happened as a research project or just happened. Graham designs his own language and he just might have a chance at doing it right.
