The Cangjie Programming Language Unveiled at ACM China Turing Conference

The ACM China Turing Conference (ACM Turing Award Celebration Conference TURC 2024) was held in Changsha from July 5th to 7th, 2024. Organized by ACM, in cooperation with CCF, the conference was chaired by the “Father of the Internet” Vinton Cerf, former president of the Chinese Computer Society Academician Mei Hong, and Academician Liao Xiangke, with academic guidance. The conference, themed “Sense, Connect, Intelligence, Trust, Digitalize the Future!”, featured domestic and international academic experts and professors, including winners of the ACM Turing Award, sharing their insights on cutting-edge technologies and artificial intelligence, and exploring the future of computing science.

On the morning of the 6th, Huawei’s Chief Expert in Compiler and Programming Language, Gao Yaoqing, delivered a keynote titled “Exploring the Intelligent Future: The Intelligent Revolution in Programming and Compilation Technology”, showcasing Huawei’s new experiences for developers centered around the Cangjie programming language, Bisheng compiler, and BiFang IDE.

After the session, ACM (Association for Computing Machinery) President Yannis Ioannidis visited the Huawei Cangjie Programming Language booth, engaging in in-depth exchanges and discussions with Huawei’s Chief Expert in Compiler and Programming Language, Gao Yaoqing, and Huawei Cangjie Programming Language Chief Architect, Feng Xinyu.

At the Cangjie Programming Language booth, Yannis Ioannidis attentively listened to the introduction of the Cangjie programming language. He expressed high praise and affirmation for the innovative concepts and technical advantages demonstrated by the Cangjie programming language.

Yannis Ioannidis pointed out that in recent years, Chinese computer scientists have contributed a lot of wisdom to the world, with 27% of the papers being contributed by Chinese scholars. China is gradually delving into the depths of computer science. The birth of the Cangjie programming language also signifies that China is gradually making its mark in the field of programming languages. The Cangjie programming language showcases distinct characteristics in native intelligence, innate full-scenario capabilities, high performance, and strong security, which are of great significance for promoting the development of global programming technology. He encouraged the R&D team to continue their efforts, explore and innovate continuously, and bring more breakthroughs and contributions to the field of computer programming.
