Dao Programming Language for Scripting and Computing

Dao is a lightweight and optionally typed programming language with many interesting features. It includes features that make the language very expressive and make concurrent programming much simpler. Its virtual machine has well designed programming interfaces for easy embedding and extending. Additionally, Dao has a LLVM-based JIT compiler that is optimized for numeric computation, and a Clang-based tool that can generate Dao bindings for C/C++ libraries from header files automatically.
