The Koka Programming LanguagePublished on 09 November 2018 (Updated: 17 November 2018)
Koka is a function-oriented programming language created by Microsoft researcher Daan Leijen. Leijan created Koka to separate pure values from side-effecting computations. According to Wikipedia, a function or expression is said to have a side effect if it modifies some state outside of its local environment.
Fun Fact: the word ‘Koka’ (or 効果) means “effect” or “effective” in Japanese.1
