Roads Less Taken

A blend of programming, boats and life.


In 2014 I discovered the programming language called Nim, earlier named Nimrod, created by Andreas Rumpf. Its a beast of a language, not at all like my other favorite minimalistic dynamically typed Smalltalk. But nevertheless, this “beast” feels more like a candy box than an endless maze, and several of its characteristics makes it very compelling even though it’s not “like Smalltalk”.

I have written several articles on Nim documenting my adventures into this new Land Of Magic. It’s not a puristic minimal language like Lisp or Smalltalk, but meant to be practical and fast. Practical and pragmatic as “Python”. Fast as “C”.
