It’s only Wednesday and I’ve already had the luckiest week that I can remember in a while.
First, on Monday I released my new language project, Nu, and had thousands of visitors to my new site, Programming Nu. Of those, over 200 downloaded my binary installer, and so far I haven’t heard of any problems with installation or any of my examples. That binary installer was the scariest part of the release for me; I just figured out how to make it last Friday! There’s nearly 50 people in our new Google group, and there’s a small but sharp core of people pushing the boundaries of what can be done with Nu. I see a lot of improvements coming as we learn more about what it’s like to approach Nu for the first time.
