Ballerina

Jenkins Build Status AppVeyor Build Status GitHub (pre-)release GitHub (Pre-)Release Date GitHub last commit License

Ballerina is a compiled, type safe, concurrent programming language designed to make it simple to write microservices that integrate APIs.

Integration Syntax

A compiled, transactional, statically and strongly typed programming language with textual and graphical syntaxes. Ballerina incorporates fundamental concepts of distributed system integration and offers a type safe, concurrent environment to implement microservices.

Networked Type System

A type system that embraces network payload variability with primitive, object, union, and tuple types.

Concurrency

An execution model composed of lightweight parallel worker units that are non-blocking where no function can lock an executing thread manifesting sequence concurrency.
