My quick sandbox with Wren (The language for EOS)
I have had a fun day of catching up on all things Steemit since my re-discovery of this crypto and platform. It has taken me on a journey of the new changes that are happening in the cryptocurrency world.
One post of interest to me is Introduction to EOS: the Epic (blockchain) Operating System written by @trogdor.
Seriously?! An OS?!
The first paragraph is great but definitely loaded:
EOS is a consensus blockchain operating system that provides databases, account permissions, scheduling, authentication, and internet-application communication to massively improve the efficiency of smart business development that uses parallelization to make possible blockchain scalability to millions of users and millions of transactions per second.
He also states
The financial industry processes 100,000 transactions per second, potentially per market [and] Bitcoin is currently limited to ~3 transactions per second
EOS + Wren
So with this new EOS there is going to be a language used for development and it is called Wren. Wren is a small, fast, class-based concurrent scripting language.
So I did a quick look through the docs and it definitely has an OOP approach to it. I spent a little time on it and made a quick simple constructor.

I also decided to just see how looping works with maps in Wren and it seems simple enough.

I was even delighted to see a syntax highlighting for it within Visual Studio Code. 🙌
It was a simple start and honestly I still have a lot to learn on understanding Wren and EOS. (Really... I don't know very much at all after one day 😀) So far I like the simplicity of Wren and feel like I could definitely get a good grasp of it if I spent enough time.
Excited about the future!
