Откопал прикольный документ: Notation as a Tool of Thought, в котором Кеннет Иверсон, создатель языка APL, рассказывает о своем детище на вручении ACM Turing Award 1979. АПЛ - абсолютно эпический язык, который по своей криптичности понравился мне с первого взгляда. Обязательно полностью почитаю этот док.

Вышел на этот креатив я через потс на кодебеттере A Programmer Pilgrim’s Progress, в котором автор пишет: "APL is interpreted which, combined with its unequaled power and economy of expression, enabled productivity such as had never been seen … and would not be seen until this century. While everyone else was presenting their boxes of 80-column cards to the guardians of the raised floor, hoping to squeeze in one or two runs per day, we were merrily tapping away at our terminals, cranking out several new applications a week".
