Meet Wyvern, a polyglot programming language for the web

Researchers at Carnegie Mellon have created a new programming language called Wyvern that lets developers write web applications using the right language for the job, such as SQL for database queries or JavaScript for interactive content. Wyvern uses context from the types of data being manipulated to understand which language is being used in any given part of the code. Wyvern could help eliminate scripting and SQL injection attacks, the researchers note in a press release. However, they add, “Wyvern is not yet fully engineered … but is an open source project that is ready for experimental use by early adopters.”
