Hi Niels,

this is what I wrote on Twitter a few days ago:

It was in response to this:

I can't but wait to see what they are cooking. It reminds me partly of Squeak, partly of the Erlang movie, partly of other things.

I quite agree about the fact that software complexity needs to be scaled down one way or another.


This definitely sounds interesting. However, I think they have to show that it actually works and not only in very simple use cases. Usually a new frameworks all languages they have some very concise examples but when it comes to more complex tasks, it’s going to be complex as well to implement it. They say that there is an integrated database for example and other integrated infrastructure components. I’m wondering how it will work when you need to interact with existing data bases or other interfaces for example.

But thanks for pointing us to this new technology anyway! I’ll definitely look into it once they post some examples Or documentation.


I wrote another post because they've released more info.
