17:57 - Community Interview: Andreas Stefik on the Quorum Programming LanguageWhat makes a programming language more intuitive or a headache to learn? Find out as Andreas Stefik (a return guest!) chats about Quorum, the world's first evidence-oriented programming language. Quorum grew out of Andreas' and his team's work on Sodbeans, a NetBeans-based programming environment for visually impaired developers. Interest in Quorum and its intuitive syntax is growing and the team's recent academic paper (#3 on the page: "An Empirical Investigation into Programming Language Syntax") sheds new light on the "language wars".
