Befunge is a fun and creative esolang — that's short for "esoteric programming language," which means it’s not really meant for practical use. What makes Befunge special is how it works on a 2D grid of commands. Instead of reading the code like you would in most programming languages (line by line), the instruction pointer follows arrows or jumps around based on the program's flow and random instructions.
Developed by Chris Pressey, this unique approach to writing programs adds an intriguing twist to solving problems in coding puzzles or just showing off your creativity in making something truly different.
