Completed the Angular.js course on code school. Very good quality. the course consist of teaching videos, then test your knowledge with challenges. This is the badge I got at the end of it.
Learn to use Angular.js by adding behavior to your HTML and speeding up your application's responsiveness. Get ready to dive into all the angles of Angular.js!

Added the types chapter to xoL concept presentation. With this I declare concluded this project. It is far too complex for just me to create a prototype. So I am leaving it as a published concept design, that may perhaps inspire others. Perhaps someday I will have time for that.

Launching the website for xoL programming language: xoL.space .For now It is a description of motives. The language is not ready to be revealed yet. I want to advance more on developing the prototype, before revealing it.

WebAssembly makes the future of the web looks quite interesting. It adds versatility and performance to the equation. The web, as a  versatile, powerful and ubiquitous platform would be hard to beat. Great news for programmers. 
I think this quote speaks volumes - "WebAssembly has so far been a joint effort among Google, Microsoft, Mozilla, and a few other folks." Sometimes I think maybe, just maybe the W3C and other web standards groups finally have some wind behind their sails. It may have taken a while, ...

I have been working in xo, a visual programming language.
The goal of this project, is to use graphic art to present programming logic and data. 

xo draws, among other things, from the ideas that I collected while working on the conceptual https://github.com/nzonbi/deathspeak programming language. But it breaks with the limitation that is written text, in an editor, and opens to the full expressive power of images, shapes and colors.

Programs contains a great deal of information, that is not easily accessible through visual inspection. It takes a great deal of mental effort, to interpret code into the ideas that they represent.

xo intends to employ graphic art, to present programs and data. Aiming to achieve optimal conveyance of meaning, and ease of manipulation.
All xo graphical elements are laboriously designed from the ground up to achieve that goal.
Rather than taking existing elements, like characters, flow diagrams, etc, xo is a complete rethink, from the ground up, of the optimal way for program and data representation and user interface.

xo is not open source, at least for now. In the future I will re-examine this decision.
This a very long term project, which I wish I had more time available to put into it.

Have you ever felt alone?
Soul project is a small start-up, that aims to ease the creation and use of digital characters, and to provide a more human interface to digital products.

xoL programming language news: Concept design phase is complete, after a long time. Final name is xoL (previous code-name was xo). Prototype development is now in progress. There will be more news soon.

Manifesto for Async Software Development

- Modern tools and flexible work environments over meetings and office hours
- Flexibility in prioritization over detailed planning
- Comprehensive documentation over tribal knowledge

That is, while there is value in the latter items, there is more value in the former items.
It's time for a 21st century successor to Agile and Scrum based on modern tools, async communication, and flexible work environments.

+The Go Programming Language  is a great language. In short:
- Clean & simple syntax.
- Streamlined type system: implements methods -> has type.
- Efficient, light & fast compiled code.
(Infimal complain that comes to my mind now: "object" is a better word than "struct".)

For now go is mostly aimed at server code. But such a wonderful language deserves more.
Two places were I would like to see Go:
- Android SDK. Native android apps in Go.
- NaCl support. Go apps in google chrome.

Of these two, NaCl support could be the best, if only Android were to add integration of chrome apps, and NaCl, as first class apps. As chromeOS does.

I hope that Google does more with Go soon.
