Wyvern

Wyvern is a new programming language designed to help developers be highly productive when writing high-assurance applications. The first major innovation in Wyvern is type-specific languages, a feature that allows programmers to create literals of a given type (e.g. a SQLQuery type) in a language appropriate to that type (e.g. SQL). We are currently working on the Wyvern object model and on providing architects with more architectural control. The ongoing implementation of Wyvern is available on GitHub. You can find our web site by googling for “NSA programming language” and clicking on any of the top hits. :-)

In this talk I will overview the Wyvern language, talk about the type-driven parsing mechanism as well as other current developments inside Wyvern. Wyvern implementation is currently written in Java and can be downloaded from GitHub
