Vor dreieinhalb Jahren gab's die erste Programmiersprache in arabischer Schrift, nun hat Ikrum Hossain eine erste Programmiersprache in bengalischen Zeichen für Kids aus Indien zusammengecodet: Potaka, hier auf Github.
The language was formally launched on Saturday evening at an event hosted by the IT firm Joomshaper in Dhanmondi, Dhaka. Potaka, which is in Beta version 1.0, is the brainchild of Ikrum Hossain, a software engineer currently with Telenor.
Speaking at the launching event, Ikrum Hossain described how the inspiration for Potaka came to him from the difficulties he faced in learning programming from outside Dhaka. (Dhaka Tribune)
