Solidity is statically typed, supports inheritance, libraries and complex user-defined types among other features.
As you will see, it is possible to create contracts for voting, crowdfunding, blind auctions, multi-signature wallets and more.
The best way to try out Solidity right now is using Remix (it can take a while to load, please be patient).
