As a compact, stack-based programming language, Forth was popular in the 1980s as a lower-level alternative to BASIC for microcomputers and is still used in many commercial environments. When Valer Bocan discovered .NET in 2001, he decided to try writing his first compiler, and Forth.NET was the result.
Dr. Sneath interviews him to find out a little more about how a single Romanian developer became one of the first people to extend .NET to new programming languages. Apologies that the video is so shaky: it wasn’t until afterwards that we discovered that the image stabilization feature was disabled. Download Forth.NET from Valer’s website (http://www.dataman.ro/dforth/index.html).
