<h1>Skywriting</h1>
<p><img alt="Skywriting Logo" src="images/sw-logo.png" style="border: none"/> Skywriting is a programming language and execution engine for distributed, parallel computation. Like previous frameworks (such as <a href="http://labs.google.com/papers/mapreduce.html">MapReduce</a> and <a href="http://research.microsoft.com/en-us/projects/dryad/">Dryad</a>), it masks the complexity of distributed programming. Unlike those frameworks, it offers a full general-purpose programming language for expressing distributed coordination, which enables developers to implement algorithms using arbitrary task structures.</p>
