Qbrt Bytecode: Interface Between Code and Execution



Matthew Graham introduces Qbrt, a bytecode assembly language with built-in primitives for concurrency and inline asynchronous I/O, enabling language designers to focus on the human interface by abstracting the implementation of complex runtime features behind a clean, simple bytecode interface.


Matthew Graham is professionally hacking on API and infrastructure code at Etsy. On the side, learning languages, yearning for more, and presently scratching his own itch of what the perfect language looks like.
