Fika, another new Erlang/BEAM language

Just discovered Fika - looks pretty neat!

fn sum(a: Int, b: Int) : Float do
  a + b
end

I quite like the syntax, though would probably prefer types to be lowercase (I’ve never used a typed language before so perhaps there’s a reason for it being the way it is).

How many new BEAM languages have we seen in the last couple of years now? :upside_down_face:

Worth to mention:

Project status: Actively developed. Not ready for production use or HackerNews.

Also looks like it’s written using #elixir language.
