I love APL, and in this UTF-8 age, I predict it will
come back. You can try my Lua embedding of it [1].

I never got to grips with J. It's way past APL in semantics
but sticks to ASCII, leading to digraphs like `a.` and `a:` as
operators where APL used special symbols. I find it
fundamentally unreadable in a way that APL is not.
Now if those guys did J semantics with UTF-8 symbols
based on APL, then we would have a really Orth [2]
programming language.
