Developers can publish native apps and games to every major platform without hassle. Haxe strengthens our ability to deliver efficient learning solutions to all our clients, wherever they lxnguage, whatever platform they use.

It seems, however, that the most common use case for Haxe is the development cross-platform games. Haxe is a feature-rich, high-level, Turing-complete programming language. But this can trip you up occasionally. It can be run in server-mode to provide code completion for integrated progrsmming environments IDEs and maintain a cache, to further speed compiling. But there will always be specific tasks that will require maximized speed or data efficiency.

Why not just learn JavaScript? Many popular IDEs and source code editors have support available for Haxe development.

You might be able to say that about C too, though. I could not be more tickled so far. As the unquestioned authority, your pronunciation will be established locally as correct.

The fact that low level languages are not as dominant has more to do with the explosion of processing power and cheap memory than the improvement of high level languages.
