Converge is a dynamic object-oriented programming language with compile-time meta-programming facilities.

Developed by the British computer scientist Laurence Tratt, Converge was originally intended for implementing model transformations in the context of Model-Driven Software Development approaches such as OMG's Model Driven Architecture (MDA).

As a language, Converge is designed to offer the features of ICON in a visual style suited to Python developers.

Converge 1.1 was released in September 2009. At the same time there is renewed interest in the ICON language (sometimes credited with inspiring parts of Rebol, Python and Ruby) with the release of ObjectIcon and ICON version 9.5.
