A new, original, open source web tech is born

Cloud 1

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)"

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.
