This time is "Reactive Programming" (whatever that means) compared to procedural programming.
According to some kind of "expressiveness" of programming languages, Python looks like a winner.
The point is that I feel programming languages needs a formal mathematical proof about which is the simplest way to represent a program, and to work from there to create the "simplest" programming language possible.
Although thats something even Von Neumann was not able to achieve, it is a good time for a company with a lot of money like Google to fund this research through a big money prize. That could propel a new era of smart devices for the so called Internet of things assuming a new simpler programming language/paradigm arises.
My question is, does any slashdoter has any hard data whether this is a doable task ?" top
