Ceylon
 is a highly understandable object-oriented language with static typing. The language features: 

• an emphasis upon readability and a strong bias toward omission or elimination of potentially-harmful constructs,

• an extremely powerful type system combining subtype and parametric polymorphism with declaration-site variance, including first-class union and intersection types, and using principal types for local type inference and flow-dependent typing,

• a unique treatment of function and tuple types, enabling powerful abstractions,

• first-class constructs for defining modules and dependencies between modules,

• a very flexible syntax including comprehensions and support for expressing tree-like structures, and

• fully-reified generic types, on both the JVM and JavaScript virtual machines, and a unique typesafe metamodel.


Gavin King leads the Ceylon project at Red Hat. Gavin is the creator of Hibernate, a popular object/relational persistence solution for Java, and the Seam Framework, an application framework for enterprise Java

    First time coming, Gavin started out slow but really blew me away as he started demonstrating the power of Ceylon. Great presentation.
