Ballerina 1.0 has officially hit the stage! This open source programming language focuses on cloud-era applications, is cloud-native, and can simplify microservices development. Let’s recap some of the language’s features and what it sets it apart from the pack. Then we will dive into the release notes and check out what this latest release includes.
Do we really need yet another programming language? Well, in this case, the answer is yes. Ballerina, the cloud-native programming language has been architected to solve the problems we face now. Let’s go through some of these challenges and see how Ballerina tackles them.
Ballerina is still in pre-1.0 but the project is moving forward. Need proof? WSO2, the creator of Ballerina, recently introduced an Early Access Development Support package to encourage early projects to use this cloud-native programming language. We talked to Paul Fremantle, WSO2 co-founder and CTO about the language’s features, the advantages of using Ballerina with a serverless platform, what’s next for this young language and more.
