failure to get started

Feb 6, 2015  

For the last month, I’ve been trying out various programming languages, as a sort of extended “Programming Language Zoo” experience. My inability to like any one of them and commit to it is depressing, but I made a few Gists out of the initial steps I followed for each of them, so hopefully a less indecisive person who knows what they want to do might benefit.

Some of these are different implementations of a language; a couple of these are specific libraries within a language and meant for OSX; the rest are all targeted for a Linux machine, assuming an Emacs editor/interface.

(Included here are SBCL, Clozure, Ocaml, Clojure, Quil, Overtone, Haskell, Fsharp, Shen, Dart)
