Urdu language is widely spoken in Pakistan, India, Bangladesh and many other countries in the world. Urdu and Hindi is third most commonly spoken language in the world after English and Mandarin Chinese. Urdu language is used in education, literature and course work in Pakistan and India. It is written in Nastaliq, Devanagari and Roman script.
Recently a young Pakistani Computer Scientist Asad Memon has developed Urdu Script a Roman Urdu Programming Language. Asad is the Co-Founder of a Silicon Valley-based startup Remote Interview. He is also the founder of StartupList.pk. Asad Memon is currently based in Hyderabad Sindh Pakistan.
As much as I wanted to. Here are few reasons:
- Persian-like alphabets are not native to our keyboard.
- The default non-nastaliq font is hard to read.
- Right-to-left code style is horrible.
- Newer generation is adapting Urdish rapidly.
UrduScript would serve its purpose in teaching programming concepts to children or beginners. Because it is easy to understand. It uses Urdu syntax and words which is easy to learn.If you want to read more about it then check it on Asad’s own website Asad Memon Urdu Script Editor Urdu Script is still in development phase you can contribute in on GitHub.
