Submission + - A new, original, open source web tech is born ( 1

phy_si_kal writes: Today, a secretive startup from Paris, France has announced that it will open source the Opa technology it has been developing for some time.
Opa is a one-tier web technology (right, that means only one layer at runtime) where Opa source code is compiled into a standalone binary. And, this could be really a game changer in the cloud era as it handles distribution very easily.
Sadly, the code is not yet available but a 171-page manual and tutorial is already available (registration required) and packages seem on the wild.

  • I've been one of the first developers (and users) of Opa, from an early, early, early stage. At the time, the technology was very promising, but not quite mature yet. It took us years to reach the kind of usability and maturity that we have now. And I can testify that Opa is now not only a great technology – it's also ma favorite programming language.
