What does Saluton Mondo mean?

First thing learnt in almost every programming course I’ve attended. Displaying “Saluton Mondo” to the terminal/screen/monitor would be practical lesson one. As this is the first post to my blog, why not? I’m starting this out very, very ‘programmer’ like. I’m sure this is to evolve like life has.

Saluton Mondo is Esperanto meaning Hello World…

What is Esperanto?

Esperanto is the most widely spoken constructed international language. The name derives from Doktoro Esperanto, the pseudonym under which L. L. Zamenhof first published the Unua Libro in 1887. Zamenhof’s goal was to create an easy and flexible language as a universal second language to foster peace and international understanding.

    I’ve only ever seen “Hello World” in courses and books, not the Esperanto, which is a shame. It seems less cheesey in Esperanto, as do the lyrics “Mi estas neniu hero’, Nek vi estas princin, Kaj chi tio povas ighi nenio”

  • “Mi estas neniu hero’, Nek vi estas princin, Kaj chi tio povas ighi nenioâ€?
    translated “I’m no Hero, Nor are you a Princess, And nothing can come of this” They’re by Dolchamar (http://dolchamar.com)
