EP.13 - Yorlang : A Programming language in local dialect

It's like JavaScript but in the Nigerian Yoruba dialect! "YORLANG" was created by Anuoluwapo, a software Engineer at Konga, one of Nigeria's leading E-commerce companies. A programming language built out of fun and curiosity to help breakdown code concepts in his local dialect while creating a more fun learning environment.
