Designed at the University of California at Berkeley, Sather is an object-oriented programming language.

The language originated around 1990, after being developed by a team led by Omohundro. It was strongly influenced by Eiffel, which inspired its being named for a bell tower on the Berkeley campus. Sather was also influenced by CLU, Common Lisp, and Scheme.

The original implementation, released in 1995, is no longer maintained. It has been adopted by the Free Software Foundation, and is now known as GNU Sather, and is dual licensed under the General Public License (GPL) and the Lesser General Public License (LGPL). However, as of this writing, the last stable GNU version was released in 2007.

Other implementations include Sather-K (University of Karlsruhe), Sather-W (University of Waikato), ICSI Sather and pSather.
