Prototyping and Basic Functions

Moving forward with Go, we developed the first prototype for CX with basic functions. As a strictly typed language, a variable or piece of information cannot be changed from one type to another after it’s declared. For example, a number variable cannot be changed into a string of text or vice versa. This prevents a lot of bugs that can be made when a program grows in complexity. While it may be a little more work early on, it prevents a lot of common errors in the long run. Because CX is deterministic, the same inputs will produce the same outputs regardless of the environment or machine that is running CX.
