At this point there are a few languages I'm set on learning, a few I'm eyeing as potential future candidates, a few languages I'll dabble in and a few I'm trying to avoid for one reason or another. I thought I'd post about them and link to their main package indexes where appropriate. I'll have a more intelligent article on languages and libraries down the line.
Languages I'm set on learning:Scheme
: Scheme has several implementations and libraries depend on said implementation. I'm a Chicken Scheme and PLT Scheme fan so I'll be using Planet
for libraries. I realize I vouched for Gambit Scheme a while back due to it's concurrency options with Termite. I hereby publicly retract that view and promise to update the On Schemes article or follow it up in the near future.Common Lisp
: I'm an SBCL fan and will happily use cliki
in my library questing. ASDF-Install does the rest.CSmalltalkForthJavaPython
: Where I shall be aided through the powerful PyPi
Languages I'm keeping an eye on:Factor
: And it's lovely indexed vocabulary
: The magnificent HackageDB
will aid me in that quest.ErlangClojure
: Bindings galore
: For use with the almighty CPAN
: RubyGems will be used in conjunction with RailsLodge's directory
for great joy.
I refuse to mention the languages I'd like to avoid. I'd likely start a flamewar for heaven's sake.
