Description

  • Trump card game that pits 32 Codes against one another.

System administrator Johann Weiher wanted to know which of the programming languages is the best, so he asked other users for help on Startnext. His idea: to have the different languages compete in a trump card game! Thanks to crowdfunding lovers, his nerdy idea became reality and now we can all have gigabytes of fun with his card game :).

32 game cards feature both well-known and not so well-known (read, 'what the...??!') programming languages, even including some Esoteric ones. As usual in trump card games, the languages compete against each other in different categories:

Appearance: The older the code, the more likely you are to win the round.

Distribution: The higher number wins. The basis for the simplified values comes from the TIOBE index

Dialect: Again, the higher number wins.

Nerdfactor: Some languages are more nerdy than others. What's more, only nerds will understand the values! But here's a little help for everyone else: 00000101 = 5, 00000111 = 7, 00010111 = 23, 00101010 = 42. The higher, the better!

HelloWorld.Length: The game needs a standard number to measure the average length of codes and therefore, uses the typical "Hello World". Finally, the lowest number wins! ;)

The languages that are used in the game (remember it's just a selection) are the following: Ada, Assembly, Basic, Brainfuck, C, C#, C++, COBOL, Cow, Delphi, Erlang, Fortran, Go, Groovy, Haskell, Java, JavaScript, Lisp, Logo, LOLCODE, Lua, MATLAB, Objective-C, Pascal, Perl, PHP, Prolog, Python, R, Ruby, Visual Basic.NET und Whitespace.
