To prepare for the Devnology meeting next month I have to write a version of Tetris in a language of my choosing. I had already fired up Visual Studio to build a kick-ass C# XNA version with explosions and 3D visuals when I realized it would be much more fun and educational to pick a language I’m less familiar with. I’m pretty sure there will be Ruby, Python, Java and Haskell implementations by some people who are pretty good at programming in those languages so I decided not to pick any of those obvious languages. But I’d still like to invest my time learning something I’m actually going to use, so Cobol wasn't an option.
