Panda Panda Panda

Panda is a new programming language (work in progress). It's written in Javascript; and it compiles to Javascript in NodeJS or compiles and runs entirely within the web browser. It's geared towards fast interaction data centric programming and has some features that "remind" people of functional JQuery set operators. It has no explicit ifs, maps, or loops. Functional and "typed", but doesn't obsess about type systems.

      Thanks for the talk! Btw, for 3D eye candies, one can envision to incorporate something like: https://www.shadertoy....­ http://www.kickjs.org...­ - one quick hack would be to have GLSL code as data and feed it to some display functions, but that's probably not ideal

      A really excellent talk, Jonas! Now I'd like to see an Ada implementation.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
