Comparative Programming

December 14, 2006

While searching for discussion about Leopard, I saw that someone had made a nice addition to Leopard’s Wikipedia page. What they did was write the same program in Leopard and Just BASIC and then they compared the two to show how much simpler Leopard is to use.

If you want to see for yourself how the approach that Leopard takes to programming is different from other versions of BASIC, then be sure to check out this example.

Leopard 2010?

December 14, 2006

An interesting forum discussion about the next programming language for 2010 has been taking place online, and comments were made about the need for a language that can be used as if it were pure English instead of some overly complicated machine code.

This has always been my goal with Leopard, and forum member stevenp mentions the language near the bottom of the second page of the discussion. In response, kryton9 writes:

“Thanks for the link, never heard about that language. I bookmarked it and sent it off to my friends who want to get into programming but can never get into it. I think this language could be the magic one. I know I will have fun tinkering with it.”

Just like the example above, as we continue to raise Leopard awareness, more and more people will see that Leopard is a fantastic programming language for beginners. We need your help, so please tell others about the benefits of using Leopard!

Where will Leopard be in 2010? I have some ideas, but as of right now, your guess is as good as mine.

Are You Persuaded?

Marketing expert Steve Rubel (of Micro Persuasion) found Leopard to be worthy of a link on a recent roundup of Internet news that he posted on his blog. Thanks, Steve!
