Bring in coding like Scratch or Blockly style and you can then have the blocks of code generate C#, C++, VB or what ever you want in the background to get compiled or interpreted code.
Languages like Python are taking over due to the lower reliance on syntax. Easier for people to learn. This is a way to make it easier for everyone to code together in general, but then gives access to specified variable sizes, direct access to memory, etc. for the advanced users.

While we are at it...lets use visual Blocks of code rather than text files to code? Think Blockly or LearnToMod style of coding. That would really spruce up the interface a lot and make it easier for kids to learn coding. Allow the blocks of code to be condensed or opened like regions but do it visually rather than forcing people to follow the syntax in text files. They allow libraries to be added to a project and the functions appear as blocks you can drag and drop in...which makes using objects and libraries self documenting. No more having to look up references to everything all the time.
