  1. It is designed for learning to program, not for meaningful work, so it does not need to implement a vast runtime to cover the day-to-day needs of real programming
  2. It is line-based, like VBScript, not free form, keeping the syntax simple and limiting the nature and scope of things that can go wrong
  3. There are only a few statemetnt and data types, keeping the focus on simple programming

Now they start them with Python… Later IContinue reading “1.0!”
