Spent a good amount of time golfing this. I'm sure there's a few optimizations I've missed, but I don't understand the word "big" anymore.

This pushes the string "Hello, World!" to the stack and automatically prints it.

Also, this is the first answer on the site! Woo!

Absolutely the shortest possible, no doubt about it. Try it online!. It won't work in the online one, copy it from there and paste it in the developer console if you are on chrome (as it uses the alert function). Please excuse my absolutely awful ascii art.

I also now see that this output isn't accepted (needs the comma and exclamation mark)... lol now it's time to figure out how I did this months ago so I can fix it ...

Explanation

First second answer of the.. entire site, actually. Nothing special. I don't think this can go shorter, but this is Raku, who actually knows. I made this post to (possibly) try and set a precedent for what a answer should look like. Obv you don't have to explain it, but it's nice.

No, I'm not joking. This ridiculous language for a code golf actually beats some of the more normal languages.
