Building a Programming Language Ecosystem

In the course of research on language design and implementation for gradually-typed languages, we have created a programming language called MonNom as a test bed for new ideas and to benchmark implementation techniques. The goal of this project is to make it easier to write and test new benchmark and example programs by extending its currently bare-bones ecosystem, for example by:

  • extending the standard library with new classes and functionalities
  • setting up a streamlined way of extending the standard library
  • designing and implementing a package manager/build system
  • designing and implementing a way of interacting with native (i.e. C) code
  • implementing editor/debugger support


Low-level systems programming experience (C/C++) + ideally knowledge about compiler construction
