This week’s Devoxx conference in Antwerp saw the launch of two box fresh languages: Google’s Dart SDK 1.0, and Red Hat’s Ceylon 1.0. From the start, many have tipped Ceylon as a clear threat to Java’s platform (the clue is in the name). But is it really Red Hat’s intention? Creator Gavin King has been adamant from the earliest development stages that the intention has always been to create something that can run alongside Java - but designed as a language and SDK for business computing that learns and builds on Java’s successes and failures. We caught up with King for the full scoop on this week’s launch, the work behind it, and what’s brewing next at Red Hat towers.

definitely some interesting ideas in Ceylon. The fact variables are immutable by default is a bold step forward.
