It seems like a new language is being announced on HN every month or so.
I'm curious why there is a need for new programming languages, and what purposes they serve that existing languages aren't well suited for. Do you have any experience you can share?
Companies I have worked for will always use technologies that have a large ecosystem and are battle hardened. What is driving the need for new languages, and who are the early adopters?
