The semicolon logo

Kaushik Thirthappa @ktkaushik

Logos are important. Very important I believe.

Thought process -

Logo should represent something that a developer should be able to associate with easily. A symbol an icon that is common among developers of most languages and frameworks. Should it speak of an error, an incident wasn't really on top of my mind at first.

I proposed the idea to @ArtAkshar who immediately spoke of a semicolon.

In our initial days of programming in C and C++, the most common compiler error used to be a semicolon. A missing semicolon is disastrous, frustrating and something that developers of most languages and frameworks could relate to.

I want to have a monotone blue color and there were no questions about it.

We quickly drew multiple mockups and in literally 30 minutes we finalized the logo :)

Extremely happy to share it with you all here too.
