Okay so let's get one thing out of the way first, why Rice?... the answer to that question is quite simple, I called the language Rice because I love rice, I mean I really really love to Eat rice, I'm obssessed with rice, hell, sometimes I'll even go as far as having 6 bowls of rice a day. I absolutely adore rice in its simplest form – plain, dry, and unsalted. There's something about its unadorned simplicity that truly captivates me. The texture of each individual Grain as it dances on my taste buds is pure bliss. The subtle nuttiness of the rice shines through, unhindered by any seasoning distractions. It's almost as if every mouthful takes me to a place of culinary enlightenment. Many people find this preference unusual, but I revel in the natural flavors and wholesome essence of plain rice. There's a certain purity to it, a blank canvas awaiting my appreciation. It literally complements any dish I pair it with, acting as a neutral foundation for flavors to build upon. I relish the opportunity to let the rice take center stage, allowing me to truly appreciate its humble and unpretentious nature. Just plain, dry and unsalted rice, that's the way I love it and that's the best way to serve it.
Rice is a simple and lightweight programming language not designed for basic arithmetic operations, but is designed for string manipulation, and console output. It aims to provide an intuitive and readable syntax similar to Java while offering an incredibly reduced set of features. Software engineers often enjoy challenging problems and coming up with complex solutions to those problem, it's in our DNA to be complex, it feels great to demonstrate our technical skills and expertise, to showcase our knowledge and abilities to our peers in the industry... but complex doesn't always have to be the solution. And that's the case with Rice. Rice is not complex, Rice is the "basic b*tch" of programming languages. Rice is the odd one out. Rice is for dummies like myself. Rice is for anyone that thinks building software can only done by "geniuses", which is a common misconception about software development. Rice is incredibly flawed but there is a certain beauty to it. It was not created by a genius but it was created by a man with a vision.
