Lisp: 13th position in the TIOBE Programming Community Index

Lisp, the most famous A.I. programming language, is ranked on 13th position in the TIOBE index. The TIOBE Programming Community index is an indicator of the popularity of programming languages. The index is updated once a month.  

This index is based on the number of software enigineers world-wide, courses and third party vendors. The popular search engines Google, Bing, Yahoo!, Wikipedia, Amazon, YouTube and Baidu are used to calculate the ratings.


Below you have the 20 most well ranked for October 2012.

Void type – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Why this site is called "voidtype"? There are many reasons: 
  • it is an unspecified type with no values
  • it is a homage to C programming language
  • it is the minimal construct 
  • it is a cool name

The void type, in several programming languages derived from C and Algol68, is the type for the result of a function that returns normally, but does not provide a result value to its caller. Usually such functions are called for their side effects, such as performing some task or writing to their output parameters. The usage of the void type in such context is comparable to that of the syntactic constructs which define subroutines in Visual Basic and procedures in Pascal. It is also similar to the unit type used in functional programming languages and type theory; however, there are some differences in allowable usage, in that the void type is taken to be an empty type with no values. See Unit type#In programming languages for a comparison. Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Void_type

Welcome to everybody

I hope this website provides you some interesting assets and you could find what you are looking for. The major topics of the site are: hardware/software technology used in designing and implementing software systems, and some special software system, i.e. intelligence agents.

For example, let's define what is an Intelligent Agent.


A intelligent agent (IA) is an autonomous entity which observes through sensors and acts upon an environment using actuators (i.e. it is an agent) and directs its activity towards achieving goals (i.e. it is rational). Intelligent agents may also learn or use knowledge to achieve their goals. They may be very simple or very complex: a reflex machine such as a thermostat is an intelligent agent, as is a human being, as is a community of human beings working together towards a goal.   Source: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intelligent_agent
