Today marks the first release of Play, a new programming language inspired by Forth.
Play might look a lot like Forth, but improves on the language in several ways. Play includes a strong static type system like the ones found in Elm and Haskell. All data structures are immutable, and side effects are tightly controlled, which leads to code that is easy to reason about.
Code written in Play is compiled to web assembly, which means it can run pretty much everywhere, even in browsers.
The goal of today's release is not to present a finished product, but rather give people an idea of what writing code in Play would be like.
