As Java continues to age, many developers ask how a language for general purpose & business computing would look if designed today. The result is Ceylon - a prototype language for the JVM which attempts to combine the strengths of Java with the power of higher order functions and declarative programming. This talk from QCon Beijing 2011, Gavin King introduces Ceylon for the first time.
