+ - Node.js competition is getting strong!->

Submitted by koper
koper (2179858) writes "The growing popularity of Node.js and Opa, which unify client and server-side coding, is a clear indication that the Web of today is too complex, and the programming model needs to be refined and simplified. While Node.js is an inventive framework based on an existing, popular language (JavaScript), Opa has a lot to offer for those willing to invest time in learning a new language. I hope you will explore these languages further."

koper writes "The Opa Developer Challenge just finished and the presentation of the winning apps starts today with the honorary mention of an HTML5-powered game of OpaTetris.
Opa is a new web programming language that distinguishes itself from the crowd by bringing static strong typing to the world of the web. It also produces, from a single source: all database queries, native server side code and client side Javascript and automates communication between the two."

+ - Opa: new web development platform->

Submitted by
koper
koper writes "Opa is a new generation of web development platform. It is a new programming language, a new web server, a new database and a new distributed execution engine, all of them tightly integrated to provide a great experience for web developers. Few days ago it became open-source.

Why should you care about yet another language? There are few things that make Opa stand out from the crowd:
  • it's a language targeted at the web;
  • it puts lots of emphasis on security;
  • it's a one-stop solution; you write in Opa and it generates for you: the client-side code (JavaScript), database queries, all the glue code etc.
  • scalability won't be a problem: your app is distributed and cloud-ready right from the start.

Curious? Sounds too good to be true? Check out Opa's homepage or my blog for more info.

Disclaimer: I am working on Opa at MLstate."
