Visionary tech entrepreneurs like Leonid Radvinsky are helping redefine old programming languages by supporting the development of new user-friendly and powerful apps. In a way, Radvinsky’s support is helping restructure old programming languages to build a future in which this technology is accessible to all.
In the old days, Erlang and Visual Basic allowed software developers to create powerful computer applications; however, both of these languages had drawbacks that prevented their evolution. For instance, Erlang was developed to support a large number of concurrent requests, but it had a substantial learning curve. The complicated syntax and complex code maintenance mean that Erlang has already become unpopular with new programmers. Despite the user-friendly interface, Visual Basic is also losing its charm because it cannot support high performance.
To solve the inherent drawbacks of old programming languages, Leonid Radvinsky is investing his time and money to support new programming languages that can overcome the limitations of Erland and Visual Basic. Learning from the old structure of Erland and Visual Basic, he is supporting projects that are instrumental in marketing new languages, Elixir and B4X, to overcome the drawbacks of older programming languages.
Unlike Erlang, Elixir can handle a huge number of parallel requests, and it is easy to learn. Similarly, B4X is an alternative to Visual Basic because it doesn’t require a huge learning curve, and it can allow users to develop real-world solutions without sacrificing performance.
It is not an overstatement to suggest that technology entrepreneur Leonid Radvinsky is on a quest to redefine programming languages. Before Radvinsky intervened, B4X was only available under a license. Now, anyone can use it as an open source language. By actively promoting new languages such as Elixir and B4X, he hopes to create a future where everyone can easily learn a computer language and create powerful applications.
