Programming languages are the interface between people and the machines that carry out computation on their behalf. As such, programming languages are fundemantal tools of computing science.
Therefore, we believe that existing languages should be studied deeply, to understand their applications, design process, and their impact on both the programming ecosystem, as well as the programmers’ way of thinking.
Armed with this knowledge we strive to improve programming languages and develop their ecosystems to be efficient at their tasks, ergonomic, and well-suited to their domains.
We do this using a multi-faceted approach incorporating elements of design, mathematics, experimental science, and engineering.
