Build your project in our new language May 30, 2021 on Drew DeVault's blog

Do you have a new systems programming project on your todo list? If you’re feeling adventurous, I would like you to give it a crack in our new systems programming language, and to use it to drive improvements in the less-developed areas of our standard library.

Note: we have enough projects on board now. Keep an eye on the blog, I’ll publish another announcement when we’re ready for more.

Are you making a new coreutils implementation? A little OS kernel? A new shell? A GUI toolkit? Database system? Web server? Whatever your systems programming use-case, we think that our language is likely to be a good fit for you, and your help in proving that, and spurring development to rise to meet your needs, would be quite welcome.

Here’s our pitch:

XXXX is a systems programming language designed to be simple and robust. XXXX uses a static type system, manual memory management, and a minimal runtime. It is well-suited to writing operating systems, system tools, compilers, networking software, and other low-level, high performance tasks.

You can get a peek at how it feels by reading about the finger server I wrote with it.

Sounds interesting? Please tell me about your project idea!
