Cloud-Oriented Programming (Part 2) with Elad Ben-Israel


The cloud has become an all-encompassing platform for running diverse applications and enabling individuals and teams to add value by utilizing services and infrastructure that streamline the process of software building and operation. Nonetheless, the cloud has presented new hurdles for developers as it is intricate, and application development demands comprehension of cloud service intricacies. Moreover, creating portable applications across different cloud providers, as well as local testing and debugging, have proven to be difficult. Additionally, leaky abstractions and inadequate tooling have made it challenging to repurpose cloud architectures into reusable components.

To address these challenges, a cloud-centric programming language called Wing has been introduced. Wing enables developers to create distributed systems that fully capitalize on the cloud’s capabilities without the need to concern themselves with the underlying infrastructure.
