Swan Lake beta release

The new Swan Lake beta release of open-source language for cloud-native programming Ballerina (www.ballerina.io) radically simplifies how developers build and deploy cloud-native applications through an intuitive syntax for developing services and APIs, seamless JSON support, and built-in concurrency control.

“Modern applications are not islands – nor are the teams of developers responsible for building them,” says Dr Sanjiva Weerawarana, founder and leader of the Ballerina project and founder and CEO of WSO2 (
www.wso2.com).  “The Ballerina language enables developers to create cloud-native applications that are inherently integrations of services, data, transactions and processes.  The new Swan Lake Beta version extends this functionality – further enabling enterprises to tear down the barriers between app development and integration and between highly skilled and ad hoc developers to speed the delivery of innovative, new digital products and services.”
 
Ballerina is a 100% open-source project created and sponsored by WSO2.  All parts of the project are developed openly at https://github.com/ballerina-platform.
