[New Year’s Resolutions] List of languages worth learning & One New Language a Year: Smalltalk

http://dustbunnylair.blogspot.com

"The Pragmatic Programmers recommend learning a new programming language every year. I thought for a long time that this was a good idea, but didn't really act on it.

A Single Command to Get Started on Functional Programming

http://micahelliott.com

"Functional Programming is old. Ancient. Like right after FORTRAN. But it’s the future. Trust me, I’m named after the dude who knew about Jesus 700 years early. Seriously, it’s not going to take 700 years for FP to go mainstream. Some would argue that it already is. Python, Ruby, and others have adopted a number of FP features.

((lambda (x) ((compile x) x)) '(lambda (x) ((compile x) x)))

http://wingolog.org

"Over the last couple days, I implemented a generic tower of compilers in Guile.So for example, you have Scheme as a source language, which defines a compiler to GHIL (a scheme-like intermediate language, simpler and without macros), which defines a compiler to GLIL (a lower-level language), which defines a compiler to object code (the byte sequence of VM code)..." -- see also

Adventures in Haskell

http://micah.cowan.name

"So, the last few weeks I’ve been learning the Haskell programming language, and thought I’d share my thoughts on it. Haskell is a pure functional programming language that supports lazy evaluation (I’ll explain all that in a moment), which has been gaining popularity in some circles (and particularly among academia and computer lingusts).
