Mojo is a dynamic, object-oriented programming language. It has an unusual feature: native support for unicode and the use of non-ASCII characters in identifiers. Mojo's syntax borrows from Ruby, Perl 6, and other languages to create a concise and expressive style. Designed to be easy-to-use while still powerful enough for enterprise applications, this open-source language runs on the .NET runtime but can be extended to run on other platforms such as the Java virtual machine.
