Submission + - Opa: new web development platform (blogspot.com)

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.

Submission + - A new, original, open source web tech is born (opalang.org) 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.
