Microsoft aims for simplicity with Bosque programming language, an open-source language is designed for writing code that is simple and obvious for both humans and machines.
Microsoft says that the key design features of the language provide ways to avoid accidental complexity in the development and coding process. The goal is improved developer productivity, increased software quality, and enabling a range of new compilers and developer tools.
This project is setup around an open-source (MIT) licensed github repository. There you can get small samples of code (Code Snippets), a rundown of notable and/or unique features in the Bosque language.
Have in mind that the code represents a project in an early statemeaning that the language is subject to revision, there are bugs and missing functionality, and the performance is limited. There is also limited support for compilation/development and no support for packaging, deployment, lifecyle management, etc. The repository provides basic Visual Studio Code IDE support for the Bosque language (currently limited to syntax and brace highlighting).
