What is Fantom?
Fantom is an elegant open source, object-oriented, software language that runs on the Java Virtual Machine (JVM).
With proven commercial success on servers, browsers, and embedded devices, Fantom is the perfect choice when considering the Internet of Things.
Concise core APIs, familiar syntax, and sensible libraries let you concentrate on the problem, not the language!
It natively tackles all the hard stuff, like immutability and proper concurrency with Actors, so you don't have to!
Fantom strikes a unique balance between static and dynamic typing, and much, much, more...
It truly is the next generation programming language!
The first video (Fantom is Fun) is a 5 minute lightning talk that gives an overview of the language. The second video (The Developer's Choice) compares Fantom to Java and shows why Fantom is a real viable alternative.
