Submission + - Announcing Opa: Making web programming transparent (lambda-the-ultimate.org)

phy_si_kal writes: Opa, a new opensource programming language aiming to make web development transparent has been publicly launched.
Opa automatically generates client-side Javascript and handles communication and session control.
The ultimate goal of this project is to allow writing distributed web applications using a single programming language to code application logics, database queries and user interfaces.

Among existing applications already developed in Opa, some are worth a look.
Best place to start is the project homepage which contains extensive documentation while the code of the technology is on GitHub. A programming challenge ends October 17th.

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.
Disclaimer: I am at MLstate (and very happy)

Open Source

Submission + - What open source licenses are you ok with? (surveymonkey.com)

phy_si_kal writes: We are about to launch a new programming language, built for the web. Crowded space, but we think we have what it takes.
Time to choose the open source license. What do you think? Should be go copyleft all the way, to encourage contributing back? Or non-copyleft to appeal commercial users? We have made a survey for this (results are public of course).
