Recently wrote a paper about Nim.Please help to recommend some detailed history articles about Nim, thank you very much! 2016-04-11 13:46:46

I don't think there are many articles about the history of Nim. I can give an overview here if you'd like, there isn't really much history to say really.

I'm interested in your paper, is it available anywhere?

First of all, I'm sorry, after a few days to reply your message, and then, thank you very much for your reply.

I am a Chinese student, writing this article is designed to complete the graduation thesis, much of the content of this paper is from the <Nim in Action>.I'm very sorry, it is only a personal graduation thesis, and the low level of papers, not published in any place.

If we can hear more history of Nim, we shall be very happy.This will also help more people know more about the Nim.

Might be interesting to update the Wiki page with more history also. Spend some time updating ( translation: Clean up the structure ) the Nim's wiki page last week but its still missing a lot of information compared to Go/Rust/... there wiki pages. Wanted to add more history but even the "Nim in Action" book had almost no historical information regarding the language development.

There is a lot of history in Nim git repository - just reading commit messages says a lot. 2016-04-18 11:54:44
Thank you for all the people all the time. 2016-04-18 12:28:27
See https://github.com/Araq/NimCon2015/blob/master/nimcon.rst for my NimCon slides which also outline Nim's history.

Updated the wiki again with some more info. Tested the sample with the 13 version and they work without a problem ( updated that also ).

But there is some discrepancy. The NimCon shows 2006 as the start, while the original Wiki entry shows 2005. Its one or the other. Can not be both
