Microsoft announced of introducing a new visualization language called “Vedea” in early 2010. Vedea is a prototype of a new experimental language for creating interactive infographics, data visualizations and computational art. Its designed to be accessible to people who’re either new to programming or whose primary domain of expertise is something other than programming. We wanted to give those users a tool that they can use to realize their own vision and visualizations without having to engage skilled programmers, but’ve it be an environment that skilled programmers would not find limiting. Veda is built on .net 4.0’s new Dynamic Language Runtime, and gives us some important advantages over more traditional language implementations. Syntactically, Vedea language looks a lot like C#. Microsoft Visualization Language and its runtime will first be available on via Veda site.
