Darklang Deployless Applications with Paul Biggar

The way we write, compile, and run software has continued to evolve since computer programming began.  The cloud, serverless, no-code, and CI/CD are all contemporary ideas introduced to help software engineers spend more time on their application and less time on the chores of running it. 

Darklang is a new way of building serverless backends.  It’s a cloud native programming language with several novel features including being not just serverless but deployless as well.  In this episode, I interview Paul Biggar, founder and CEO of Dark.
