An interactive قلب session showing the Fibonacci algorithm

قلب is a programming language exploring the role of human culture in coding. Code is written entirely in Arabic, highlighting cultural biases of computer science and challenging the assumptions we make about programming. It is implemented as a tree-walking language interpreter in JavsScript.

All modern programming tools are based on the ASCII character set, which encodes Latin Characters and was originally based on the English Language. As a result, programming has become tied to a single written culture. It carries with it a cultural bias that favors those who grew up reading and writing in that cultural. قلب explores and challenges that by presenting a language that deviates almost entirely from ASCII.

pachube
Together with pachube, a service to onnect, tag and share real time sensor data from objects, devices, buildings and environments around the world, you can write xml or “EEML” to link information between buildings sensors and devices. Cool, but i like the idea of simply a green code, whatever that means;.)
