it seems these languages have some similarities to the way cobra takes:
  • fantom (most similar imo)
  • c# (obvious influence)
  • python
  • elixir
  • haxe
  • euphoria (a little. has enhanced code structs, and invariant (type))
(which did I forget? okay eiffel is a known one)

perhaps cobra could be refined further, by taking a look at those others.
they have some nice features or integrated them well into the language.

"Julia" seems pretty forward thinking. It seems to have a similar philosophy compared to Cobra:
It is multi-paradigm, combining features of imperative, functional, and object-oriented programming. Julia provides ease and expressiveness for high-level numerical computing, in the same way as languages such as R, MATLAB, and Python, but transcends its general programming limitations. To achieve this, Julia builds upon the lineage of mathematical programming languages, but also borrows much from popular dynamic languages, including Lisp, Perl, Python, Lua, and Ruby.

After a very quick overview it seems to run faster then Cobra, but syntax seems to be worst then Cobra's syntax, even though that is a bit of a subjective opinion.
Nevertheless I though it was an interesting upcoming language.

the fantom programming language is "most similar" to cobra?

from: ...

Like C# and Java, Fantom uses a curly brace syntax.
