New Native Languages

The editor of Dr. Dobb’s Journal, Andrew Binstock, has put together a nice little slideshow summary of four “modern” native (native = no virtual machine running underneath the code) programming languages here: New Native Languages. As the figure below shows, these relatively new languages are D, Go, Vala, and Rust.

According to Andy, “older” native languages like C11 and C++11 “can have the feel of a past era onto which contemporary elements have been grafted“. I don’t agree with his “grafted” assertion, but I have to begrudgingly agree with him when he says:

The upshot is that to be truly expert in C++ requires far more education and far more effort than comparable mainstream OO languages (notably, Java and C#). – Andrew Binstock
