Stephen Wolfram Launching the Wolfram Open Cloud: Open Access to the Wolfram Language

Published January 28, 2016

Six and a half years ago we put Wolfram|Alpha and the sophisticated computational knowledge it delivers out free on the web for anyone in the world to use. Now we're launching the Wolfram Open Cloud to let anyone in the world use the Wolfram Language—and do sophisticated knowledge-based programming—free on the web.

Celebrating the Hour of Code with Wolfram

Published December 17, 2015

One hundred children and adults gathered for our first free annual coding day for the Hour of Code on December 9. It was an afternoon full of collaboration, learning, and, of course, coding. In the spirit of this global event, people of all ages came together to prove that programming is for everyone. Using the Wolfram Language, participants created websites and experimented with projects like the Ninja Name Webform Generator and Play(ing) Random Melodies.»


Untangling the Tale of Ada Lovelace

Published December 10, 2015

Ada Lovelace was born 200 years ago today. To some she is a great hero in the history of computing; to others an overestimated minor figure. I've been curious for a long time what the real story is. And in preparation for her bicentennial, I decided to try to solve what for me has always been the "mystery of Ada". Click here to read the rest of Stephen Wolfram's blog.»


I Wrote a Book—To Teach the Wolfram Language

Published December 8, 2015

I wasn't sure if I was ever going to write another book. My last book—A New Kind of Science—took me more than a decade of intensely focused work, and is the largest personal project I've ever done. But a little while ago, I realized there was another book I had to write: a book that would introduce people with no knowledge of programming to the Wolfram Language and the kind of computational thinking it allows. The result is An Elementary Introduction to the Wolfram Language, published today in print, on the web, etc. Click here to read the rest of Stephen Wolfram's blog.»

What Is Spacetime, Really?

Published December 2, 2015

A hundred years ago today Albert Einstein published his General Theory of Relativity—a brilliant, elegant theory that has survived a century, and provides the only successful way we have of describing spacetime, as shared by Stephen Wolfram on his blog.»
