Zimbu - programming language
Zimbu is an experimental programming language developed by Bram Moolenaar, the creator of the Vim text editor. The goal of Zimbu is to combine the best features of other programing languages (including Java, Python and Ruby) with new ideas.
Zimbu Design Principles
Zimbu incorporates a number of design principles and choices including the following;
1. Code must be easy to read.
2. Learn from experience.
3. Nobody likes bugs.
4. Faster is better.
5. The next compiler version will add a new feature.
6. Write once, run everywhere.
7. Programmers need tools.
The Zimbu compiler, source files, examples and documentation are distributed under the Apache 2.0 license. Zimbu was first released in November, 2009.
