Welcome, fellow programmer, to the world of Alpha !
Alpha is a simple, fast, low-level, programmable programming language. As such, it is suitable for a wide range of applications, from systems programming to database management to GUIs all the way to AI and full-fledged video game coding. The only limits to what you can code with Alpha are your imagination, your mastery of the language and the amount of free time you have on your hands !
In order to convince you of that, I can only show you the way. You have to walk it. Good luck !
If you have feedback, criticism, beer or money to give, you are welcome to contact me (Marc Coiffier) and I will be glad to answer (especially in the latter cases ;-) ).
