Abstract / Description: 

Designed for the new generation of programmers, the Wolfram Language has a vast depth of built-in algorithms and knowledge, all automatically accessible through its elegant unified symbolic language. Scalable for programs from tiny to huge, with immediate deployment locally and in the cloud, the Wolfram Language builds on clear principles and 25+ years of development to create what promises to be the world's most productive and accessible programming language.

Additional information about the language can be found on the Wolfram Research website.
