General Development For a few years, I've been working in the real world, I mean the enterprise world, sorry. In every company I've worked for, they offered me the opportunity to learn a lot of new things, or at least that's what they always said in the first meeting before sending me to be just another company programmer. But in fact I've learned some very important things, just not about programming. I had to learn about these things on my own, about the needs of a real company in the real world.

RE: "Why a new langauge?"

Because then it wouldn't be Gambas, it would be Ruby, or C#, or python. A better thing to have state would have been, "Why didn't they use an existing runtime to host the language like .NET, Mono, Portable.NET, Parrot, your mother," but what you said makes no sense. ;(

The point was to create something easy to use for people interested in the logic, not the technicalities.
