Microsoft Unveils New (and Simpler) Open Source Programming Language

According to Microsoft’s Mark Marron, it’s time to move beyond the structured programming paradigm of the 1970s and onto something a whole lot simpler. With Bosque, Microsoft’s new open source programming language, he’s attempting to do just that. Marron sees Bosque as an entirely new model, which he dubs “regularized programming,” because it does away with techniques that accidently create complexity – like loops, conditionals, and subroutines – and focuses instead on algebraic operations.
