Resolver One - Beta

Saturday, December 8, 2007

There are plenty of languages laying around. They are tools with advantages and disadvantages. Knowing them allows us to know which are best to the job at hand. Recently I reflected on which languages would I use for different tasks.

If I had an idea for a killer web site I would go with Ruby on Rails. I have done one app using it and was very happy with it.

If I were making a windows app, I would code against .NET. The language of choice for this task would be Nemerle. Nemerle is a functional language with powerful macros (don't confuse with C macros) targeted at .NET Framework.

What would I use to add some processing to a spreadsheet? Python would be my first choice :). Resolver One allows to script a spreadsheet with Python. The Beta has just been released [download].
