CAN HAS LOLCODE? AWSUM THX

If you have ever seen those pictures of cats with text superimposed over and if you are a programmer, you may appreciate a new language called LOLCODE.

LOLCODE is programming the LOL way. Every block starts with the keyword “HAI” and ends with “KTHXBYE”. There is a list of keywords on the website as well as some example code.

Here is the standard “HAI WORLD” program in LOLCODE:


HAI
CAN HAS STDIO?
VISIBLE "HAI WORLD!"
KTHXBYE

Here is something I wrote:


HAI
CAN HAS STDIO?
VISIBLE "IM IN UR TIMEZ"
VISIBLE "STEALN UR PRODUCTIVITYZ"
KTHXBYE

The language is still being formed, and people are making suggestions for syntax and constructs to be used in the language. LOLCODE on MONORAILS might even become the standard language of web development!

By the way, if you plan on doing something important for the next few days, don’t click on that pictures of cats link above.

    You know, I wish I’d known about this before. I made some example repositories — I would have totally done all the code in them in this! It would be funny. I wonder if I will have time between when work ends and the talk starts …
