In Fall 2014 I took a course called Compiler Construction, and it sparked my interest in trying to build my own language. The language I started building in my Spring 2015 semester is called Ra.
The idea with Ra was to try build a language for web-application generation. Basically given the most simplistic syntax and minimal number of lines generate a powerful web-server. The language is purely focused on making it easier for beginners and advanced individuals who design web applications to prototype a server. The language is also created to be be more expressive than Go.
