### Why the name "Axiom"?

An axiom in mathematics is a statement so simple that it needs no proof.
Similarly, the Axiom language is meant to be so simple that it does not require the programmer to learn advanced concepts in order to use it.

### Is the Axiom logo just the "share" icon turned sideways? Or the Braniac logo turned upside down?

It's actually supposed to be the "therefore sign" with the dots connected to resemble the letter "A".

### What is this for? Who is using Axiom?

It is still being developed, but Axiom aims to be the best programming languages for all programmers.
Because of its extremely simple syntax, low learning curve and extensive library,
Axiom hopes to be better than other languages for the following use cases:

- Sharing code (in place of pseudocode)
- Hackathons (where rapid prototyping is key)
- Beginners who want to learn programming
- Experts who like to get stuff done rather than focus on language minutiae

If you do end up using Axiom for anything, I would love to hear about it.
