Magda is a new programming language, introduced in Jarek Kusmierek's PhD (http://www.mimuw.edu.pl/~jdk/mixiny.pdf) and continued in Mauro Mulatero's thesis (http://www.tesionline.it/default/tesi.asp?idt=45612).
Magda's goal is to allow a programmer to write well-modularized, reusable code.
Magda is based upon the core notion of mixin as unit of reuse and as building block from which objects are created. The power of modularization of mixins is enhanced by two unique features.
The first feature is the modularization of constructors. In Magda, many mixins with independent definitions of constructors can be combined without the need to copy any code and without the risk of clashes.
The second distinctive feature modifies the way declarations of new methods, overriding methods, and method calls are done, in order to rule out accidental name clashes, even with respect to future modifications of the code.
A collection of samples written in Magda language are also available.
