As promised, here is our "Hello, World!" example (also in PDF). This kind of program is illustrative to show the very basics of a programming language. Usually, the program consists on showing the string "Hello World!" message in a console. However, Speech does not know much about consoles or strings. Instead, it is really good at representing social processes and the rules governing them. Therefore, we will be helping God in order to fulfill his functional requirement list: create the world, create the human being and empower him to say something. So please, be open-minded to meet Speech!
Before you leave: we hope to see you in the next delivery, where we will be showing you how to program Twitter in Speech, a real application that fits perfectly with our language.
