An interesting development.
But it can get complicated very quickly when you start adding different libraries and frameworks to the code.
Sometimes a more wordy language can be better for new coders since they can more easily see and understand what someone else’s code is doing. The code should be “self-documenting.” By that, I mean that you should be able to look at a function and with descriptive variable names and proper white space, be able to tell what the function does. A problem with including comments in code is that the comments quickly become outdated and incorrect.
I may be a tad biased since my background and day job is with Cobol, but once you learn the basic syntax of any language, it should become clear what each reserved word does, and it’s meaning.
