Jakt: A First Look

First Look: The Jakt Programming Language

Luke Zeisset Development Technologies, Programming Leave a Comment

There seems to be a renaissance in systems programming languages. Updates to C and C++ don’t seem to get the attention of a lot of developers that aren’t already interested in their development. In contrast, languages like Go, Rust, and Zig are hot topics that seem to do an excellent job recruiting people, nearly providing the level of accessibility that Python does.

A fairly new programming language appeared this year that strikes an intriguing balance between C++ and Rust. That language is Jakt, and I’d like to shine some light on it.
