Ceylon is a new programming language designed to execute on the JVM. We're fans of Java and its ecosystem. However, we think that the language and class libraries, designed more than 15 years ago, are no longer the best foundation for a range of today's business computing problems.
Ceylon's design goals include:
- easy to learn and understand for Java and C# developers
- eliminate some of Java's verbosity, but keep its readability
- improve upon Java's typesafety
- provide a declarative syntax for expressing hierarchical information (user interface, external data, system configuration)
- support and encourage a more functional style of programming with immutable objects and higher-order functions
- great support for meta-programming
- built-in modularity
