In this interview, Brian Beckman, Principal Developer (currently working with Erik Meijer), attempts to teach me higher algebra using Visual Basic, generics, and operator overloading. Brian is a wonderful person and brilliant physicist and we have a lot
of fun with vectors and matrices and VB. I actually think I understood some of what Brian showed me .
Visual Basic is a great language for mathematics as well as all kinds of other applications. Brian makes the point that he has fun coding in VB because of its intuitive style and how easy it is to be immediately productive. Check out
Brian's blog post on the VB Team blog! And for all you abstract algebra aficionados,
here's the code to play with.
Enjoy,

I really like this. I read on Joe Duffy's blog that he's working on a language that is a hybrid between C# and Haskell. Maybe it supports the higher-kinded type-system necessary to naturally express these things. I tried to do similar things in ML but in
the end the solution wasn't really that appealing.
