This question is not nearly so absurd as it sounds. We may, indeed, have completely explored all the different types of computer languages. It may well be that any new language invented will simply be a minor improvement of an older concept. In this talk, Uncle Bob Martin asked if perhaps it's time we stopped exploring that space, and simply picked "The Last Programming Language". What would that language we like? What attributes should it have? And is this idea wise?
We hope you'll enjoy this SkillsCast recording of Bob's talk as much as we do!
