But you might ask, "Are there any other languages like Forth?" -- Yes. And if you also asked, "what makes these languages different? That's what this talk will explore... How stack-based code functions, Why is reverse polish notation the most straight forward approach? No need to name variables? You will see example code at each step and you can play with your own variations. It's worth knowing more about this very different way of coding and you'll have fun trying it out
