Why the name of newB ?
I was rewriting a piece of code when i decided to name the folder : a new Begining the capital B as i would sometimes do in naming variables but as it was too long i named it newB
After sometimes i realised that it sounded like ‘newbie’ which suited perfectly the situation, i was a newbie in language creation, my language was a newbie in the language world an i had in mind to write it newbie / beginners’ style
Why an extention of .nub ?
It is because it spells out nu-B : newB same as the language name
Is the language Open Source ?
How can i conribute to it ?
Via Git hub. For now i tied it to my gh account, later we’ll decentralise and move to an organisation

files in the repository
What is the logo of the language ?
