    It seems we cannot search out the Declare programming language.

    I've done work on a quite similar tool set for about a year - it's called AML and DOL. AML is a purely-functional, declarative, modular language that works like a simplified language workbench. DOL is a 'declarative object language' that allows you to define simulations such as games and UIs in a purely declarative fashion. DOL looks somewhat similar to what you're doing.

    I agree that what we are developing is a new paradigm as DOL and perhaps your tools will be candidates for replacing valid uses of OOP. The AML interpreter is up and running, but DOL is still under development.

    Be careful about claiming novelty for your idea of an implicitly-timed object system - I've been working on AML and DOL for about a year, and I presume also much work has been done by haskell developers. Here's a link to my work - github.com/bryanedds/aml

    Language itself looks interesting. However:
    - Code is nearly invisible in video
    - There is not even line of code on slides
    - I cannot download anything from the web site (I assume www.declare-lang.org/)
    - The only code I can see is a fancy and difficult to read syntax sheet on the web site

    All of this forces me to forget about this wonderful "spherical horse in a vacuum" presentation and wait until author will be ready to present at least something ...
