This book, subtitled "Esoteric Languages That Make Programming Fun Again"starts with a dive into the underlying history of programming, covering the early computer-science concepts, like Turing machines and Turing completeness, that led to the languages we use today. Ron Kneusel then explores the realm of “atypical” programming languages, introducing you to the out-of-the-box thinking that comes from these unusual approaches to coding.
Later chapters address the even more unusual esolangs, nearly all of which are like nothing you’ve ever seen. Finally the author helps you develop and use two entirely new programming languages. You may not apply these languages in your day job, but this one-of-a-kind book will motivate you to think differently about what it means to express thought through code, while discovering the far-flung boundaries of programming.
