Fundamentally Hyperlambda is really just a Turing complete markup language, with some added capabilities resembling features from XSLT and XPath. You could argue Hyperlambda is the programming equivalent of YAML. On the index of « programming level abstractions » if we argue that CISC x86 assembly code is at level 1 (the bottom level) and C# and Java is at level 5, while Python and PHP are at level 10 – Hyperlambda is at level 100+ somewhere.

Of course, the point being, that 95% of the times you need a low level programming construct, Hyperlambda implicitly creates your C# objects and ties these together 100% correctly out of the box. This reduces the cognitive complexity of your resulting app’s code by orders of magnitudes. To illustrate this difference, please have a look at the following code snippet taken from Microsoft’s official documentation for how to correctly create an HTTP request from C#.
