Leo Radvinsky has a knack for business, and it’s placed him in several roles. He’s an entrepreneur as well as a philanthropist, a technology innovator, and a venture capital investor — and he thrives in all these positions. One of his most significant achievements is finding old programming languages and investing in their improvement. In the technical realm, the best technologies continually evolve so they can make the changes needed to keep up. This is especially true of older programming languages. Radvinsky has placed himself at the forefront of this technological evolution. He helped change Visual Basic and several other languages that were half-forgotten so that they have more future functionality.
Success With B4X
As an early language for programming, Visual Basic was straightforward and easy to use, but it wasn’t created to assist with high-performance functions. It was largely forgotten and relegated to the dustbin, but Leo Radvinsky was aware of its benefits and invested in improving it. Radvinsky knew that it was simple to use and liked that trait. He wanted to keep that benefit while getting more usability for programming language B4X. B4X is the modern-day version of Visual Basic. It was proprietary software in the past, but now, with the help of Radvinsky and his vision for the future, it’s open source technology.
Today, the language is highly elegant as well as easy to use. It’s gotten a lot of improvements that have made it helpful for many applications. It makes it far easier to perform cross-platform development, and is functional with a number of other platforms. Radvinsky’s investment into this language has made it great to use for many tasks. It’s flexible and is poised for future use, including for the Internet of Things.
