Darklang, a functional language for the cloud by Paul Biggar

March 22, 2023

I’ll introduce and demo darklang, a “deployless” programming language for building cloud backends, talking about why I built it and what it’s good for. I’ll focus a little bit on why we chose a functional language, and how functional paradigms (esp immutability) allow us build features that don’t exist elsewhere.
